540i xdrive m-sport rear jacked up

I have m-sport with active suspension but no active stabilization. I believe springs in this combo are the normal height however aesthetically from side view the rear looks out of place, a bit tractor like. Just too big of a gap. Front is fine and no complaints on handling but I really think it would be much better with maybe 1 inch drop in the rear. Wonder if a set of regular rear M-sport springs would fix that.

Would it upset the balance? Would it wear out the rear active shocks faster than normal? Perhaps somebody already tried this?

Not sure I know the answer for sure. But I do have a set of M-Sport springs for sale if you’re interested. PM me.
