Default rear strut suggestions for a 01 GP GT....

2001 GP GT w/117K miles
all original suspension.

My problem is when there are passengers in the rear the car sits way to low.

What would you guys suggest would be good struts or springs if needed.
I don't want to lower the car or anything just want the car to sit up normal when people are in the back of it.

So what is a good brand for the buck?

And what do you think of a aftermarket load leveling system for this car; I can get a automatic one for around 250 off the net.?

Thanks guys

You could get air assisted struts like Jr'* did...but it sounds more like you want load leveling.

the problem is not the struts but the springs....Intrigue Springs for the rear are direct replacements that take care of the rear "squat" the GP'* have

That would be the way to go if an LLS from a Bonneville won't fit. You won't be sagging ever again.
