Choosing tj coil springs

I don't like the stance my tj has and I was looking for some suggestions.

Basic setup
-Chevy 350 (iron heads)
-th350
-np231
-d30&8.8
- poison spider flat fenders front and rear
-35" mtr kevlars
-I believe they are 4.5" springs

I like the height that the front is at right now but the rear is almost 2" higher. I think a combination of the added weight up front and the larger diameter tubes on the 8.8 in the rear has caused it. I believe the front is at about 3.5" now after sagging.

I would like to find a spring manufacturer that could sell me springs that will be the compressed length that I want them to be. I would be fine with just replacing the rears to make them match the fronts if it would be possible.

What is my best route here besides coilovers?
