    Default levelling the suspension?

    I have a full size LPG tank in the boot of my GSi.

    I would imagine that when full it weighs approx 100Kgs if not more?

    The back end of the car obviously sits a lot lower than the front - is there anyway to correct this?

    several options.
    Remove the tank
    but some ballast weight in the front
    live with the ride height difference
    Fit different springs to the rear to raise it
    fit different springs to the front to lower it

    Didn't know whether different springs would spoil the handling.
