Default Lifts for non-suv/truck cars? Been searching forever.

I have a 1999 Toyota Camry 4 cyl, and I have had the worse possible luck trying to figure out how to lift the rear end of my car. I can't find any springs with a high enough spring rate to keep the rear end from sagging a good 4-6 inches as it is right now. All I ever see is lowered springs that is not going to help me one bit.

Right now I have em on spacers, but the springs are so compressed (500 lbs pushing down, 3-4 inches pushing up from spacer), I feel like something bad is going to happen.

Look up a company called SpringWorks out of California. they build me some custom rear springs for my accord when I had it. I added tons of weight and it still stayed up a little higher than stock with no weight. it made the ride bouncy but smooth bouncy. I paided up around 370 for the pair though.

They quoted me $465, thats a bit steep in my book. Trying to figure out of maybe springs from a truck at the same size would fit, just just to figure out the dimensions.

thats a hard thing to do, its gonna be cheaper and better in the long run to get some custom made ones.

I ended up having to spend more money on tires to replace that bad wear i got from the bad camber on the wheels. but when you think of how much a system big enough to cause that weight is and how much a good suspension can do for a car, it not that bad.

you can also try looking a the front suspension for cars. they are usually stronger and have a bit more length. thats what I wanted to do first, but they were different diameters.
