    Oops...my bad...read the OP wrong.

    I have my stock springs on the back and Sportlines on the front. Rides great as long as you adjust the rest of the car's suspension to match.

    ^^ is correct add heater hose and still use the OE pads,this will give 1/4-3/8 ".
    I was lowered 2" ( with springs and OE pads)when I installed 9" the top TA bracket bolt was hitting the bottom of car on small bumps I added hose and it gave me the clarence I need

    You can get spacers made ive seen them on ebay that sit on the axle and have a locating ring like the stock axle for the rear spring. I was going to buy 1/2 inch ones. if I can dig up his email I'll pm it to you. 2 spacers were $50 or so.

    Go to advance auto, and ask for Coil Spring Boosters. Gave me my 1/2'' raise i need in the back.. They cost $7 and takes 10 mins to do.

    ^^^ work great.
    When I installed QA1s' in place of the OEM gas-charged shocks,the rearend dropped slightly(pressureized gas shocks do provide a slight amount of lift),I used them to bring the vehicle back to 'level'. Easy to install and remove with large 'channel locks'. Rearend has to be 'hanging' to open up the spring coils. Spring 'rate' also changes(stiiffer) as you have less active coils.
