Coil Over Upgrade?

I currently have nitrogen filled Marvin Shaw shocks all the way around on my sand car. I am thinking about adding a coil-over package to the rear and would like to know if anyone has an opinion.

What are the benefits of adding coil-overs vs just charging the shocks with more pressure. I have a nitrogen charging setup and am currently running the rears at around 375 PSI. It works fine, but I would like to have more clearance in the back without the shock constantly topping out. I hear that Marvin Shaws can go 1000 psi+.

Some blue anodized coils would really pop on the rear - I think.

So which is better, coil-over or just more pressure?
