Getting the stance

Hello. I don't have the money to completley revamp my suspenesion, but I LOVE the look of having alittle higher back than front. Obviously the best way would be spindles and shocks and whatnot...

But what are the shortcut ways? I just want a little more agressive stance out of my Grand Prix. What are the disadvantages to doing it the cheating way? I can imagine a little less corner capabilities, but my car is already lacking that.

Thanks a bunch.

Old Hotrodders solution. Put a block of wood (cut to the height you want the car to be) under the front frame. Fire up the torch. Heat the front coil spring till it sags the car down to the block of wood. Do both sides.

Car will ride like a lumber truck, spring will eventually break or sag to solid.
Tires will wear.
