how to get rid of raked look?

What would be a recommended method?

I'm gonna be using brandnew ZHP shocks front and rear and I want to figure out which springs I can use with them to keep the car level.

If I get H&R I wouldn't get the Race b/c I don't wanna go that low at any point on the car. The rear ride height of the Sports suits my needs better, but then the front Sports drop even lower. I want the front to be level with the back. Is there a way to raise the height of the front aside from which spring I use?

Sorry if I sound clueless in case there is an obvious solution.

ALSO! I will be using TMS sways front and rear and also want to replace all spring pads front/rear/upper/lower. Are there thicker pads I can use on the front? Would this have any negative effects on ride or reliability?

I have only seen thicker pads for the rear and it is the upper rear pad from the Xi models; of course that won't help you get rid of a raked look but will increase it slightly.
