You can raise the body by installing heavier springs or air shocks.

Do i have to get these from a Mini dealeror can I get them from a parts store, or on line???

Let me pose the question: Why? You have an under powered model. If you are interested in clearance for larger wheels, the answer is simple, DON'T. If you are looking at rally applications, the check out Fox Racing. You will also need beefed up steering and all supporting components if this is the case. Still, you would be better suited with an S.

just want to lift for looks and clearence. I'm not looking to send it over the top, just to stop from bottoming out.... using 17's and tire clearence is fine. I just want to get it off the ground a little.

Like I said, either say you money for an S or a Countryman. I have stock 18's on it. They rock!
