depending on the suspension set up you can look into load assist airbags....might be able to get em under there

it should have coils in the back right? they make little spacers you can put in the coils to raise them.

Your lancer will never be that low without major reworking of the front and back. Give that idea up.

Just DONT buy the eBay junk coilovers. Get a good set, its worth the extra money- trust me. They had some junk coilovers on my car when i bought it from the dealership and the ride was HORRIBLE.

I would look into something more like the first person posted about. I have drag bags on my car which will hold 30PSI. It stiffens up the rear and and will also lift it up depending on how much PSI I put in them... I would say it could lift the rear up 2".

Look into Vogueland springs. They are made stiffer just for that reason to not to sag in the rear. I also think there not to expensive.
True coilovers will run you from $700-$2,000. Ebay knock off's are like $200 and the are not the same thing.
