Reference Parts Geometry on Detailed Drawings

How can you force the geometry of reference parts to print behind to print behind your visiable  parts. I have my reference parts rpint out on a light gray layer to be shown indistinct on a drawings, but it prints over my object lines in effect hiding them. This is even true if a refernce part is hidden. Then hidden line will print over the oject lines as well.
