I don't think there's any need whatsoever to do this on a modern car. The suspension is designed to cope up to the maximum rear axle weight for the car. Exceed that, and you're breaking the law anyway.

Properly (and legally) loaded, the downforce on the coupling won't exceed 75Kg. As long as you don't make the mistake of putting all of the really heavy stuff in the boot as well, the car should ride perfectly well on the standard suspension.
