Does anyone know of a rear spring helper kit for the Vitara, I have never been happy with the angle of the rear driveshafts even when the car is empty, I had to go out last week fortunately the day before lockdown, with the trailer on the back (Karl will know what was inside) !  it`s a four wheel Brian James trailer and the nose weight was just a little bit lighter than I would like, although there was enough weight in the load area of the Vitara to make sure the car was nice and stable but for piece of mind I would like a bit more weight on the nose, when it`s regularly used for towing next year I can adjust this but will obviously increase the driveshaft angle a bit more, I either need a pair of uprated rear springs or some form of helpers for the originals, not had much luck searching for them, everything seems to be for the Grand Vitara, just wondered if anyone had come across the same problem, thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions.

You could try these MAD Suspension helper springs, I have not used the helper springs but I have fitted and used the Cross Country Vitara Kit (4 Springs) and the fitment was easy and the ride very good

Just to say the helper spring kit recommended by Karl is superb, easy to fit ,stops the car thumping down in a couple of sharp dips in the road locally when loaded and much better when towing, if anything the car might be riding a tiny bit higher at the rear , I didn`t measure before and after but probably just helped the main springs back to their original new position.
