Yeah that's why many get one size lower in the rear, to even it out.
As you said, in standard form they are higher in the rear, so springs will lower it but keep the same stance, and being a wagon they are probably Heavy Duty springs in the rear.

You have a few options, get lower springs, get current ones compressed, fit thinner spring insulators, maybe even try sedan springs depending on how low you want it.

yeah king ssl or sssl will drop it down a fair bit more, i don't have much experience cutting or compressing springs, there is plenty of threads already that talk about the ins and outs of both.

probably King Ultralows (ssl) to even it out, but it depends how low you want it, and if you want to remain legal.

Have a look through some "My Ride" threads on here or visit Streetwagons. com to get ideas
