94 formula z suspension whats my options?

well it seems the rear of my 94 formula z sags really bad when i get on it what are my options to not let it sag so much any input is appreciated, do the shocks need rebuilt or something? anything to make it stiffer in the rear?

Apart from swapping out the skid for an sc-10 type upgrade, stiffer springs and check your shocks is all I can suggest...
