I think you didn't get what i meant...you are trying to sing high notes like the c one octave above middle c without falsetto...so you gotta use head voice unless you're a freak like andre matos from Angra(he uses chest up there)...
the thing is that raising your adam's apple gives you a very unpleasant timbre...in other words it'll sound like shit unless you keep a lowered larynx (adam's apple). James Labrie sings using his head voice up there (he reaches an F# above the tenor high c...i can get to a d# or even a an E6 in a good day). Oh i almost forgot you won't get any vibrato by straining and raising your larynx also.

this site covers a few excercises to lower your larynx and why it should stay low.
practice...cheers
