Question about Garden
There should be two threaded rods with a nut on them that goes from the frame to the deck. Check the height of each blade and which ever side is out of balance you can disconnect that sides rod (usually held onto the mount with a clip or cotter pin) and turn the rod to either raise or lower your deck until it is level.
The above was for leveling your deck.
If you just need to raise or lower the deck depends on if you have a lever on the right side with a push button on top just depress the push button and push forward to lower or pull back to raise.
It might have a round knob that you turn to raise or lower.

Park the tractor on a firm, level surface. . .
At the lower end of the lift/lower travel slot, there should be a plastic cover which you pop up so that your blade lift handle goes all the way down (it should say something about blade level on there somewhere. . . . .
After you have the handle in this position, look at the front lift arms of the mower deck and find the 2 large wing nuts, one on each side. . . . .
Loosen these while the deck is down and then retighten them Your deck is now level and will lift to its highest recommended position when you raise the lever

just bought a new craftsman riding mower. model lt1500. 17.5 hp with 42 inch deck. first time using I had the deck hight handle set on 6 the highest setting and still cuts grass to short, matter of fact it scalped the grass. anyway to set the deck higher. Its only 3 days old and still under warranty but the sears store is 20 miles away and I rented a trailer to go pick it up and hate to go rent another trailer to bring it back if its just a simple adjustment.
