Evo Springs into ce coupe?

Is there any way i could somehow fit some evo springs into a ce coupe? ive been looking at doing a rally build but dont see much in terms of long travel performance suspension, so i thought the thicker springs for a heavier car would lift the car slightly and handle a bit of throwing around. if not evo, what other suspension could i use for dirt/gravel rally?

Drummond motor sport do shocks for a lancer or mirage but the budget needs to be pretty big.
Second hand ex rally gear is likely to be absolutely thrashed. I'm interested in this sort of a set-up for a street car. Bilstien can make coilovers with long travel, cheaper than DMS but still expensive.

Aren't lift springs available for these cars?

The front Evo struts bolt in.
The rear ones have a different method of bolting onto the lower control arm, however when they do bolt in (ie, whatever modifications required are carried out) they do lift the rear of the car significantly

I think itll be worth the messing around to get the rears to fit in. where did you hear some of this? know where i can get any more info? from what ive heard evo suspension handles some light thrashing so itd be worth it for the lower price to find them

If you are speaking of buying after market evo springs to fit your car then you might aswell buy aftermarket springs to fit your car. Unless you change everything in the rear stock evo won't fit

I read it somewhere here.
And the strut tops on an Evo sit lower than a CE.

The main difference is how they connect to the LCA.
Google image it as my description is quite poor.
