Spitfire/GT6 Springs

I have a Spitfire with a 302 four speed setup, and have a GT6 waiting for either a 460 or Barra (I have both engines already). The problem is that the Spitfire is sitting mighty low right now. There must be something out there that uses a similar sized spring with a higher rate that can be fitted. There are spring manufacturers close by, but I am building on a budget of almost nothing and I repurpose anything I can whenever possible.
Also looking for a radiator that will fit better than the one I have, The previous owner of one of my cars used a smaller radiator (motorcycle?) on each side of the main one. I might try that again or use the trunk (boot), but don't really want to eliminate the luggage capacity.

You might do better to ask such chassis-related questions on the Triumph Sports Six forum.

Be ready for some pushback, not everyone appreciates modified cars, but the fact that it wasn't your work may provide an excuse !!
