Default Coil Spring Spacers

I am looking for a 1" coil spring spacers. I am a big'n and I always carry a 40lb tool bag in the back of my car and I have bearly in spec camber in the rear.
So I am looking to go beefier such as the Cobb but I am not looking to ride lower. My jack only has 1/4" clearance as is.

Have yall seen spacers so I can keep stock ride height?

I've actually been looking for something similar to this for my Speed 6. I'm lowered on RPM Street springs and would like to raise the front about 1/4" to 3/8". The only thing I've found is the spring inserts that circle track users put in their springs to raise spring rate and ride height. I'd be interested to see what other people have to say about this.

Here's what I'm talking about: Spring Rubbers : Coil Spring Rubbers : Coil-Over Spring Rubbers

I had Airlift1000 (made by Airlift Air Lift - Home) in a minivan before. It works great. But I can't find one for the Mazdaspeed3. I guess you have to measure the ID of our rear spring and get one from Airlift that fits.

I was in a mood to comment in equally and opposite magnitude of stupidity that is all Tomas.

The air bags were wow, but to much for me.

Thanks for the replies. I will try and take the negative camber out first. But Mr Gasket looks the 1st option I try.
