Drop Suspension Loyale

anybody drop front coil springs with a swap or part? I have 2wd Loyale poppin a wheelie and want the front down instead of back up to match it. It seems too dang light - makes me think twice about the back end way up in the air going down the highway in a wind. The front sits as high as a 4x4. I noticed the angle of the engine, and really want to accomplish this.
Using 2wd XT struts and springs would bring it down, retain a close to stock spring rate and would not need those scary little clamps.
Another option is adjustable coilover type things. They aren't really made for our cars, but I adapted a set for a WRX to my wagon.
Something like this

heh, I'm pretty sure I could snap those
if i had a third arm I could have squeezed together one row and put the coil lock in ....there is a Big impression about these Little soobs....I haven't quite figured it out yet. I have seen those on v8 cars and much heavier springs. The soob has 250lb(?) total, leaving each row even less. I squished a row nearly together with one hand. I trust the universal statement on package. 2.5 inch snapping back up even on a turn isn't even dangerous if i should be able to snap one (most likely on a hard takeoff - holds the front end down since they have been in).
I like that coil over idea, I spotted similar but was uncertain of good fit. I need to leave the goofy saggin back end low .. otherwise I would try something like it.
