Moog CC859. It is listed for gen 1/2 rear but it fits gen 3/4 and I installed and tested them myself on my 04 as a proof of concept. It is a progressive rate cargo coil and it will make the firmness and load carrying far higher than any stock replacement type spring. As you load the car down further, the progressive coils start to touch which makes the spring rate higher to prevent squatting.

None of the replacement springs that come on a quick strut will be any stiffer than the super weak 100 lb/inch stock gen 3/4 rear springs.

+1 to what he said! They are also much thicker steel so hopefully won't sag/rust/break as easily as OEM.
