if height is a requirement in the inspection then you are gonna have to raise it back up no choice.

If you got lucky the previous owner used coil overs to lower it and you can raise and lower it with only the special wrenches no new parts. Check for a threaded body under the springs with two large aluminum nuts that the spring rides on. If not you can cheat and install a spring booster that installs in the spring when you have the car jacked up with no weight on the springs. Under $40 at a parts store usually. Then take them out after inspection.

haha same thing happened to me. ask around town and see which garage passes cars they shouldn't be. you'll hear of a few take it there. i live in virginia our law is its gotta be 4" from the lowest part. and i can't fit my fist under my car. and I've had it 3 years now. just ask you'll find somewhere. Good luck though. raising can be a pain.
