So I spent over a Month (Literally) actively searching online, information regarding the Suspension of these second gen Sephias, learning mainly about the Coil Springs; things like how much lbs per inch they can bear, spring rate, load capabilities, etc... and then searching for a suitable replacement that could bear a little more weight, without being too stiff, nor having too much preload on the coil, in order to keep the Ride as great as it could be.
My conclusion was that the Front suspension is alright as it is, but the Rear suspension really needed a change on its Coil Springs: in order to get better handling loaded, sportier feeling in the Rear like the car already has in the Front, and get rid from the saggy butt, I needed to find Coil Springs that must be a little Taller and little Harder for the Rear Suspension.
The union from the Shock Absorber + Coil Springs is known as "Strut" and since the Shock Absorbers were alright, I started to hunt for better Coil Springs to improve the rear struts.
