/anything/ taller than the stock size will make the steering heavy and wooden unless you can also mess with the alignment appropriately. and I'm pretty sure you'll bottom out and scrape things unless you can use taller/stiffer springs too, along with suitable shocks.

lift the back more than an inch or two, and you'll need to mess with the length of the thrust bars that tie the differential to the rear subframe, and likely the drive axle length too, and the panhard rod.

I saw a 940 wagon once that was sitting on a chopped 4x4 truck chassis+frame, it had *big* tires.
