Default Maybe a quick TXIC answer? STI V7 springs on my 01 RS

Okay... I have searched and I cannot find what I need. I have been wanting a higher spring rate in my car without lowering the whole thing. I was considering going with AGX with GCs to maintain a stock ride height.

Why do I want this?

I have added some 75-100 pounds (liberal estimate) to my trunk with a box. subs and amps. ANY lowering spring just makes the back end sit too low. I do not care to look lowered as my driving style is not too condusive to lowered life.

I use to run STI V5 struts with P1 springs and had to put spacers in the rear to solve this problem (and had the words "Kumho ASX" rubbed off of my tires as a result).

Will a set of inverted STI V7 struts with STI V7 springs have about the same ride height of a stock GC6? And does anyone know a definitive spring rate for these? Northursalia doesn't have these spring listed.
