Raising a modified 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata

We have a used 99 Miata that the previous owner made more sporty. This included lowering the car. I understand that we can buy some aftermarket parts to raise the car a few inches. Anyone knowvwhat kind? Where?

Purchase Miata replacement springs direct from Mazda, or RockAuto.com, or Autozone or really any store that sells replacement springs NOT identified as “lowering” , “sport” or “performance”

You have a car that has aftermarket parts on it to lower it, now you want to add more aftermarket parts to it to raise it back up ?

Do it right and put stock parts back on it, be cheaper and safer in the long run.
