Default sagging rear end

if you look up under my name in the avatar box you will see my car
what you cant see is how much my rear end sags
and as soon as you put one or more people in the back that think just drops(litterally) when no one is in the back there is and inch of gap between the top of the tire and the bottom of the wheel well and when someone sits down in the back the thing drops down so bad that you cat see the top of the tire( when i say that i mean the white wall)
i got underneath it and checked for any friction from the tire to the wheel well and there is none i am hoping that i can fix it with just some new coil springs

You don't have any form of air suspension do you?

Step one, get new springs... Possibly with a higher load rating

Step 2, add rear air struts

They are worth every penny when you go grocery shopping and load the trunk down... Even with the added weight the car still rides good without the rear on the ground...
