Default Road Clearance

My 1999 Camry rides very low, bottoming on speed bumps etc.., especially
when carrying four passengers. I've been told to get used to it, as it's a
design feature.

However, the other day, I parked behind a newer Camry, probably 2001 or
2002, which was noticeably higher than mine by several inches.

Have the newer Camrys been built higher? If not is there some adjustment or
kit which might have raised the one I saw?

I also have a 99 with 4 cyl engine. Same problem. the v6 has a different
suspension and sits higher. I presume the newer design is taller, but
I've also just gotten used to it. My new problem is a vibrating
noise./thumping sound from the rear suspension when the car is loaded,
usually at speed. Sometimes sounds like a piece of plywood bouncing
around back there.
