Buy tein street basis or street advance coilovers from thmotorsports. Raise the back up higher to account for more weight.

200-300 LB is significant.

You'd re-use your OEM top hats with the Teins, OP. The damper adjustments on the street advance may come in handy to you. I believe they're only like $75 more than the SB's.

I know this is an old thread but I never got the coilovers, I replaced front shocks with OEM replacements. I plan to do the same with rear, but is there a spacer or something I can put on top of the shock to raise the rear a bit to prevent the sagging from my woofers. Thanks
