300zx too low, how to raise it

Hey guys Iím new to these forums.

Just purchased a 96 300zx NA today (yay me) unfortunately I live in a speed bump ridden city, my brother drove the car for 10 min and passed a speed bump super slow but it scratched enough for coolant to leak and engine to overheat. Before I even go and start trying to fix that problem, is there any way to lift the car even 1-2 inches to reduce damage every time I go over a speed bump.

thanks in advance everyone.

It would be good to know if it has the stock suspension or if it's been lowered. If it has been lowered it is as simple and easy as replacing the springs with either OEM springs or ones with a similar ride height.

If the car is at the stock height and you want to go higher that's another issue.
