Raising a lowered bike?

I'm going to look at a lowered bike tomorrow and I already know the current owner does not have the stock rear links. Do lowering links have an option for a stock ride height as well or do I have to hunt down parts? Also how high do you make the front? All the way to the top I assume but I'm not positive.

Look at the. Links, see if they have spare hols and how far between

Also, how far are the forks protruding above the top triple ?

It's rare for forks to be cutdown, but it can be done.....
If they are level and short, they are cutdown.... That would require new forks.

What bike? Some links are infinitely adjustable with a threaded rod. That kind can probably be raised to stock height. If it's not the threaded rod type, spend ~$50 and get OEM link.

And two questions you should be asking:

Why was it lowered?

What else was done to it?
