    Dude you have a good 3 inches you can raise it up by.
    if you dont have the C spanners, the take out the coilover (you can do it in the car if you want, just easier taking it out)
    get a large flat head screw driver, put a rag around the end of it (only 1 or 2 folds) the then you'll have to press the end into the "steps" in the bottom rings and use a hammer to screw it down (this will unlock the seat).
    the use the screwdriver to tap the top seat up about 2 inches or so.
    and screw the lock ring back up and into the spring seat.

    It helps ALOT if you clean out the thread with a wire brush and wd40.

    Then raise it up 1". The spring seat is sitting quite low on the thread.
    are the springs captive when it jacked up?
    the s13 gear it low but even without adjustable bottom mounts you should still have it driveable.

    i had some non base height adjustable coils in my car and had same height issues was realy low, the shocks are just short stroke and realy need height adjutable coils so the shocks dont max out on the top. my height adjustable hsd coils are wound right up and am only happy with the height now!!!

    also instead of the old toyota junk tie rod ends i would sujest using Buddy Parts motorsport tie rod ends they are awesomeness!!!

    if you dont have base adjustable it will not work well. you can not raise the car much just using the spring perch and still have any sort of reasonable droop.

    that being said, yours isnt any lower than mine i think and i got a decent droop - springs arnt captive though and the stroke is ok BUT mine are BASE ADJUSTABLE ... thats the common theme

    Mine don't have an adjustable base, and it's a useable height.
    How high is your car off the ground?
    It doesn't look crazy low.
