Look for drop spindles .That would be a better way to approach the problem.

Speedway motors or Stock car products for springs..we need the weight of the car on each axle to help with a setup..

If you can't find the springs that will work, you could try cutting the coil springs because that makes them stiffer. I don't know just how much stiffer but, it might be worth a try.
