Coilovers too low on Highest setting

So I have a Set of Tein coilovers and I want to raise the rear more. I am at the bottom of the rear coil adjuster so there is no way I can do anything with that. How else can I raise the rear more, would I just need to put in higher springs. I want it to be where I can put my fingers on top of the tires.

Do you have your ride height adjusters sitting under your springs or above them? I'm relatively sure they go on the bottom for most kits, so the highest suspension setting would actually be at the top of the threads, not the bottom.

I tried both with the same results.

Is the shock body ajustable? If so the shock would need to be readjusted along with the springs

The shock body isn't adjustable in the rear isn't adjustable, the spring perch is.

mmm i had this issue on my bc coilovers but i had to re adjust the shock body as well. Did it come with any thing to put under the spring? and the spring perch adjuster for the rear definitely goes on top in the rear, if you put it on the bottom you cant get to the perches to adjust. Do you have any pics of what it looks like?
