Rear coilovers with tender springs

As I assume is typical, when my rear suspension is at full droop my rear springs unseat. I am considering using tender springs with floaters to alleviate this. I personally have not seen this done on road cars and was wondering if anyone has any input on using these.

When does your rear suspension reach full droop. I would think when you jack up the rear of your car? Any other time?

What length and spring rate are you using?
I used 10 inch springs with rates from 225-300 lbs.
IT does depend on what your car weights and what mods you have done to the suspension. A torque arm rear will need higher rates then what I used.
