Default Racelands... Help me make this somewhat better

I have raceland coilovers. I want to add a bit of height to the back to maybe help better the ride. I currently have ~200-250lb spring in the back, but they're too short. I wanted to add the helper spring that comes with the kit in order to be able to add some inches to the back. However I lost the spacer needed in order to use the helper spring. Any suggestions on what I could do? I would get another set of spring but I don't have the money right now.

I went full retard. Im trying to add height. I didn't use the thread thinking for some reason that would compress the spring more. I really didn't have that much problem because I use to barely drive the car, but now I'm making regular ~500 miles trips every now and then and it's killing me.

Sell the Racelands on craigslist. Buy something that doesn't suck.
