There are "boosters" out there. But are in no way safe to use. I would recommend installing the stock spring if you're looking for a raised hieght back there.

You should ask james/sl33pyriceboi. He is the wisest regarding your inquiries.

springs are made for certain specifications. .. weight etc. modifying them will ruin what they were made for. it's not safe to modify your springs.

Not a good idea to modify a spring at all (cut, stretch, booster, ect.)
They're made the way they are for a reason.

I'm new to Hondas but I had several built bmws and we used to use different thickness spring pads to make minor height adjustments. Stock ones for example are about 3mm thick, going with a 7mm will raise you up a hair.
