at 90k miles it's time to do shocks and coil springs. But, I don't want to drop it. I'm having a hard time finding aftermarket coils that won't drop the car.

shocks yes, but do you really need springs? Anyways, NAPA lists replacement front and rear springs.

Check out Strano springs too

If anything, your shocks are worn out. Their crap from the factory. Springs are probably fine, Koni shocks are on a big sale right now that wont last long. Then the price is going up.

For shocks - konis or bilsteins depending on your requirements and budget.
For Springs - although I agree that your stockers are probably fine - OEM springs are available or SLP springs which lower the car none to .7".
Strano, BMR, Hotchkis all lower between 1" to 1.25"

I put moog cargo springs in the back. Got them from summit. I used the heater hose mod and they stayed at the previous ride height. If I had used the stock coil insulators the new springs might have raised it 3/4 to a inch
