    unless you are running super stiff springs in the front, i'd sugjest hef-t coils in the rear. the Moog/TRW CC709 has the highest spring rate (275#) and weight capacity...more than even the CC705's for some year dynastys. on my k wagon the ride height dropped ever so slightly, but suprisingly on my much heavier 89 spirit es, the ride height increased. be a great way to solve that sagging back end and even things out if you are running stock front springs. they only cost about $80 and are available through the local Napa or whatever (they will have their own part number equivalent).
