Default lift kit?

I'm just curious if there would be an easy and kinda inexpensive way to give the 97' bonnie a 2-4in lift with out getting into anything that will cause rid problems and all that fun stuff I'm just so used to trucks and suvs that I fell like I'm sitting on the ground and I want some of that hight back if not guess I'll learn to live with it and fell out of place in trucks in suvs instead

Coil Spring Spacers? I'm not sure it would work or not.

We're doing it to old Corvettes. Much easier. Mustangs are lifted using Bronco parts. The 60'* and 70'* frames interchange.
