You may need to get some heavy duty torsion bars and wind them higher. It is probably the stiff rear springs with no weight in the back that has you doing the downward dog. You can wind up the bars you have on there but this will probably give you a spongey front end. You need to jack the front end up and adjust the bolts on the bracket at the end of the torsion bar. You will likely need a wheel alignment is you lift it too far. I think I got my lift kit from 4x4 Supercentre, including new rear springs and HD torsion bars. Don't recall the cost though

is it actually a problem? its never going to be a sports car.

main thing is decent shocks, possibly uprated torsion bars if its lifted.
trouble is the more car like you try to make it, the less off road you make it.

just don't go to hard. a lot of guys fit hard suspension for 4wd but this reduces the amount of flex they have which means more wheels in the air.
