Rear suspension modification

I have installed a hitch on the back of the cube I haul four bikes on the bike rack and I need to change my rear suspension to match the weight that I am hauling.
After you load up and all the weight in the back of the car it's really sagging in the back.

Any ideas for this, replacement springs or coilovers?

Springs would just lower both. Coilovers would give you the ability to raise the back end up higher when you need to tow. And lower it back down when your not.

I was thinking the same thing with coilovers.

Have you heard of anyone going to a heavier rate spring over what came stock?

Not sure if any company makes a stock height with higher spring rate. You might have to go custom on soemthing like that.
