you can try looking for some eibach ers coil springs at a diff spring rate at your liking

HT-Spec VERSION 2.0 Coilover Damper Kit, 04-08 Acura TSX & TL, 03-07 Accord - HeelToe Automotive

these guys at heeltoeauto offer a choice of these eibach ers coil or the standard asian supply on the ht-spec coils which are pretty much the same as f&f. try contacting them to see if they'll sell you a set of the eibach springs. they are supposed to be stiffer than the ones that they originally come with. if not try ground control, they sell springs alone at custom spring rates.

Wouldn't stiffer spring make them ride worse?

I have them on my car and they are stiff as hell 12kF and 6kR. I wish I could soften them up a lot.

The standard springs that come with most of them are plenty stiff enough. I'm not sure why you need anything stiffer unless you plan to load the car with heavy stuff, help minimize body-roll further, or road course racing.

What is the purpose of getting stiffer spring rates?
