if you present your VIN to a dealer parts dept, they can tell you the factory spring part your car was shipped with. If after delivery somebody installed new springs front and rear, then all bets are off. You may want to just consider doing all four corners with OEM or after market... but all the same.

Another solution could be a professional lowering kit with the wheel angle adjusters, I have these installed on all four springs of another car (Dodge) and they work great. These are not hard to install, or you could have them installed at your local shop. Just make sure you don't get the cheap ones that just compress the springs.
