Google ----- adjustable coil-overs. They can be set for different loads and ride heights.

If you want to match ride quality and ride height they are the best option. You can always ghetto it with spacers or spring inserts......your choice. As far as getting a heavier rate spring for your car, it is a shot in the dark as to where the final ride height will settle.

well i wouldnt mind if it sat a little higher than before just as long as its not sagging...so get adjustable coilovers for just the rear? and they will support the extra weight in the trunk?

You can set it higher, lower, even.........whatever you want. Just get rear unless you want to adjust the front height, ride, etc. You will need to specify the additional load(weight) that has been added to the car when you contact the manufacturer, whichever brand you choose. I have run AVI and Koni in the past.............had good luck with both.

Never bought any for a Honda, always used coilovers. But the cheapest ones i was able to find for mustangs where from Autozone. We usually change them when we filled the hatch with stereo in the fox body cars('87-'93).

well if the coilovers are a little too pricey then i guess i can always go there and ask about some stiffer springs...

If you get those cheap *** coilovers off of ebay most will lower it an inch set to the maximum heigth, do a search in the yellowpages for spring places around your town. There is a shop across town from me that is pretty knowledgeable. They can custom make springs, dearch leaafs, lower, lift, they do cars, trucks, big rigs, motorcycles, atv, whatever. There are shops that specialize in it.

kyb and edelbrock both make an adjustable shock ( coil over ) for racing and they work well also.

Buy new struts. On ebay.

If you arent going to lower your car, new springs or coilovers are a waste of money.

THE kyb shock r they to just raise the car or carry more weight

Kyb struts arent bad if you are staying factory height.

The extra weight is going to be negligible, your car sags because the current struts are worn.

i wouldn't go with coil overs if you plan on raising the rear. for a good coil over set you'd be looking at spending well over a grand.
some spring manufactures can most likely custom make you some springs that you could use to replace the oem ones you have with a stiffer/stronger spring compression rate. i can't think of any company names atm but they make lots of custom suspension stuff.

Two words.

Air shocks.

It's the most cost-effective way of maintaining a balance in your situation.
