I don't think you want that. There has to be a certain amount of 'free sag'(difference between rear axle and a spot on rear fender directly above it. measure with the bike on a stand and them measure with the bike on the wheels, but no rider onboard - the difference between these two measurements is the free sag.) Not sure about your model, DRZ calls for about 30mm of free sag. If you have the spring that compressed, you most likely need to go to a stiffer spring.
When I set the bike on the kickstand, I can feel the suspension come all the way to the top limits. Is this a bad thing,
Here's a good link to setting sag. LINK

Get a stiffer spring, It will be the best money you spend on that bike after jets!!
