Can one get stiffer rear springs on a wagon?

One option would be to not haul heavy stuff, but then what's the point?
Are there stiffer aftermarket cargo springs, or something along those lines (air bags?) that could be installed to help keep the rear up with load?

I called around, $70 will get me a set of springs from an Accord with A/C & an automatic transmission (the stiffest set available).
Are there any major problems with fuel economy from jacking the rear? Also, will the struts take the additional load without issues, or should I replace them while I'm at it?

I figured you could do better than $70... I got mine for $20.

I think I may just stick to trying to leave the random engines out as much as possible.
