ITR will be alittle stiffer as the rates on ITR springs are 250/250 so the shock will be stiffer then stock EG to be valved right for that ITR shock. However, springs will help control the weight more though

just a get a set of firmer springs that are not prone to sagging and then get them with a more agressive drop in the front... then, if they aare stiff enough, you shouldn't notice a huge difference, but with a little more drop in the front it should even out!

Or if you've got a system and you want even ride height, coilovers are great as you'll just adjust the rear higher then the front and they are valved for the stiffer springs, but even Omni is almost $1000

Exactly...If you're picky about your ride height, buy coilovers.
