While driving in Scotland for the last 14 days i noticed the spring coils in the rear of my Forester are a bit to weak. What spring coils could i use to make it *stiffer* in the rear ?
Thanks for your advise , please add price and make .

I have a 2010 SH and need stiffer rear springs because when the car is loaded for trips it goes down too much. I know that a few companies have stronger springs but their specs don't offer the layman much info with recomendations for a spring with maybe a dual rate for over loaded weight. I use my car offroad and need all the travel I can get and still be strong enough to handle more weight. Any suggestions out there?

From what I see, the US X model doesn't have self levelling rear suspension so that's in your favor.
Maybe best to check out/ post in the suspension and handling forum as here in Europe we have fewer options.
