Front bumper lip problem

The bumper of my car is scratched from being so low. I want to get a urethane bumper lip to protect it. The one I chose was going to make my car 4 inches lower. Does anyone know of one that won't do so?

FOUR INCHES lower...!!! My "stock" car clears most parking curbs...BARELY by fractions of an inch (there's no parking curb height standard). Do you really think that a "urethane" bumper lip is really going to "protect" you?

The main reason I want the bumper lip, is because my bumper is so scrached and it would be cheaper to just cover the bumper than to get it painted. It is scratched mainly from misjudging turns and side swiping the curb.
