Re: 69 front suspension

If you have coilovers then you are limited to what you can do since you want the shock to have roughly 50% travel in each direction at ride height.

Then trying to raise it an inch by adjusting the coilovers would not work .

Assuming they are centered now then you would have to increase the shock length by roughly 1/2 inch with the adjuster nut to get the ride height 1 inch higher. If you have a shock with 4 or 5 inches of travel you should be OK. At least that is my opinion.
