I run an 80 camaro with rear leaf springs. On the rear of the leaf springs, the shackles can be adjusted if you take the lower bolt out and put it into a higher or lower hole on the shackles. What effect will it have on the car by raising or lowering that adjustment?

Also, I ripped a hole in my fuel cell last weekend. This week I am creating new bracings and bars to raise the fuel cell up in the car. I'll be raising it about 4 inches. Any ideas how this will effect the car?
