Avant rear springs

Stock spring should give sufficient ridee hieght and support pretty heave loads.  If not
their might be a problem with the mounts or trap-link adjustment.

I had this problem with mine lowered on H&R.  Think I'm running Eibach now - little
lower than stock but not radical.  Coilover setup can help - did with the H&Rs, but got
tired of diddling with them. 

Also adjusting the camber via trapazoidal links to pull the wheel in slightly at the top
can help although technically throwing car out of alignment, I found it handled better
too and never really saw any adverse wear.

I can now still stick in a serious load of bricks without rubbing of having to get under
the car and reset the coilovers.  This is using the Eibach springs and bilstien struts.

My avant sits normal empty and corners well (not race track cornering)
considering what it is compared to my sedan, but when I load it up it sags
and squats and the muffler hits the pavement under strong acceleration.  Is
there a solution to this problem?  Some sort of overload spring?  The avant
has only 130K miles.]
