Default rear coil replacement for slight lift

My rear suspension sits a bit low, especially when I have a couple bikes on the hitch rack. I am looking to replace the coils with something that sits about an inch or so higher, or at least something a little stiffer if nothing else. Any recommendations on which springs to go with? Thanks

Yes, that is why I'm here. It's difficult to find any aftermarket springs listed to fit the ET let alone ones known to provide a slight lift or have a progressive stroke. I figured it was a long shot, since probably not too many weirdos run a hitch rack on this car or would worry about suspension sag if they do. You can buy a spacer kit to get a lift, but I thought it would be easy enough to do with the proper rear coils. Looks like I would have no problem finding kits if I wanted to lower it though.
