First question - how many miles and/or how much time since the front shocks installation? It's considered as normal for the new shocks and struts to ride a little higher than normal at first.

Over the course of a few days and miles of normal driving, you'll notice the vehicle ride height begin to 'settle in'.

Unless of course, the rear shocks and coil springs are badly worn in the first place, in which case these should be replaced as well.

Try these on-line parts resources; www.autopartsanything.com; www.partsgeek.com; www.Rockauto.com, www.stockwiseauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the replacement rear shock absorbers from around $15.00 each, and the rear springs from around $67.00 per pair for your vehicle.

Rear shock absorber = MONROE part #32407 - or it's equivalent
Rear coil springs (pair) = MOOG part #80919 - or it's equivalent
