I need Ideas to raise car ride height.

The problem I am going to encounter is exhaust scraping at the long tube header flanges as the system sits real low and I am damn sure it will scrape on anything that is over 3 inches high!..like speedbumps for instance!
My thought was to use a higher tire on the front.(right now 225/45/17).
The suspension is KYB AGX on stock springs.

Can you use Coil overs to increase height?I know you can use them to lower the car but I never thought any more about it.
I'd hate to have to sink more into the exhaust and go to shorty headers and again have to get the exhaust redone at a shop.

Ideas Guys?
Thanks.STYX!~

Where do you plan on driving that you'll encounter immovable items on the road that tall on a regular basis? The header flange should be really close to in line with the front tires, so if you roll over the speed bump with both wheels at the same time it'll lift the front, header flanges and all.

Seriously, I couldnt have had more than 3" of clearance and I never hit anything. I daily drove the car and definitely had to go over speed bumps. FWIW I was worried about it though.
