Default 98 s90 rear spring conversion

I'm hoping someone might have a solution for me. I've got a 98 s90 for my work car, and I carry a lot of tools in it. I'd get a truck, but my commute is 130 miles a day. My car sags pretty badly in the rear from the weight. Does anyone make, or know of, springs that would support the rear of the car better?

We have rear coilover setups with helper springs for just this application.

They look great and all, but this is just my work car. It has 350,000 miles, so the coil overs are worth more than the car lol. I'm looking for something to handle a bit of extra weight. I haul all of my hand tools, saws, compressor and nail guns. And the car squats pretty badly.

You should get a 240. They actually have good resale value, then you can buy fun stuff for it.
