Just bought my e92, need to raise it

Hey all, I'm in a bit of a dilemma.

I got a nice, used 335, and it came lowered on an ST suspension but without any tools. It's a very low car, I can hardly clear anything in my town, sometimes even basic streets.

I'd like to raise it to something a good bit closer to factory height. My friend and I tried raising it with his Coil tools for a different set, but the wrenches had a hard time gripping, and it seems this particular suspension set only has one adjustable knob (at least on the front; we didn't even make it to the rear).

How can I do this without buying a new coil set?

Contact a ST Suspensions vendor, they should be able to source the spanner wrenches for you to adjust the height.

There should be an Allen screw to stop the coil perch from turning. Make sure you loosen it first, then try to turn the coil perch.

For both. It's on the side of the lower perches on front and back.
