Ok aso i run a large stereo in my 94 Swift Gt and it cause my ass end to sag quite a bit...so much so that on bumps my tires rub (which annoys and irritates me)...so id like to get input on how to keep stock ride height and have more load bearing capacity? Thanks in advance for the input

Head to the junkyard , find Mk4/5 metro and pull the rear springs out, install them into your ride and if its too high cut them as needed. Mk4/5 springs are heavier duty and little longer , that should compensate for that monster box you got in the trunk.

This works! I did the swap, and carried 300+ lbs in the rear on a consistent basis. With the longer springs, the car sat level and handled like it ought to.

It was kind of funny to see it without the weight in the back when I sold it. Can you say "stink bug"?! :D
