Default Stiffer, stock height springs?

Has anyone came across any springs that are stiffer than stock but don't lower the car any? I would like a firmer ride, but I live on a farm and drive my civic through too many fields and dirt roads to lower it very much, maybe I could get by with .5 an inch or so

I'd highly recommend looking into a set of the yellow, adjustable Koni shocks. They work great with stock springs, and are adjustable for rebound, so you can make them as soft or as firm as you want. Plus, I think the Honda ones even have an adjustable height spring perch, so you could probably even lower the car down the 1/2" you want.

If you don't want to spend as much (and maybe not get as good of quality), I'd also take a look at the Tokico Illumina shocks. They're also adjustable but, in my experience, don't work nearly as well (or last as long as) the Konis.

Besides, if you get stiffer springs, you're going to need new shocks anyway.

The kit they sell with shocks and springs looks like a good deal. Thanks
