[OS X TeX] phantom-like trick?

Is there an easy trick to getting the SUBSCRIPTS in a expressions like

\Psi_{\overline{\Delta\nu^*}}

and

\Psi_{\Delta\nu^*}

to share the same baseline?  (Inner products and things of objects like 
these just look weird with the subscripts on such different levels.) I 
often use \phantom for jobs like this, but I don't see how to make it 
work in this instance without something very kludgy and likely to 
break like

\Psi_{\phantom{\overline{\Delta\nu^*}}\hspace{-15pt}\Delta\nu^*}

Thanks,
David Craig
