Default Accord heavy duty struts

I have an 05 Honda accord Lx 4cyl 2.4L and I'm looking to purchase rear struts and I need them to b a little more heavy duty bc of the weight of my audio system which adds about 300lbs in my trunk and the OEM struts are sagging. I'm Jw if anyone knows of any heavier duty struts for my car that can handle the weight? Or if they make any at all?
I've looked at bilstein but it looks like they don't make them for a 4cyl. And I've also looked at kyb.

I think the best option is to get some coilovers.

personally, I would stay away from KYB....they just seem cheap IMO. Back when I was going to upgrade suspension in my prelude, I sent out an email to both TEIN and Tanabe about there springs. TEIN told me I would be better off buying their coilovers since it has adjustable spring rates. And Tanabe told me their GF210 springs have a 30% increase over stock, but they couldn't say for sure if they would work in my application. While this was more towards springs, its something to think about.

Id double check on Bilstein since thats who I definitely would go with, maybe send them an email or give them a call; but next I would try Koni yellows.

I say look up ksport,D2,B2 coilovers or if you want to stay on a budget then get some Konis.

yeah its definitely gonna depend on your price. Coilovers are gonna get you in the 700+ range unless they are used, and you can't buy just rear coilovers.

well, usually you won't find springs in singles or pairs, its gonna be all 4. But struts you can buy singularly. I was gonna get Tanabe GF210s (springs) with bilstein sports for around 500 bucks. Check out shox.com, thats who I was gonna order from.

I have the sameish car with the sameish problem. Let me know if you find some sort of solution... If I can't I'm just going make some sort of custom brackets and level it out.
