If it is bumpy then its because the spring rate is too high. You need to get a lower spring rate and maybe even progressive springs. If your car is lowered what type of shocks do you use ? If properly lowered you should have short stroke shocks. If you do have short stroke shocks, then putting on stock springs will not work (shocks will be constantly engaged and will not compress and decompress that much) as you would need standard shock absorbers. If you have standard shock absorbers...well..it goes to explain why your ride is bumpy (the shocks are always compressed because the strut is pulling it down so nothing gets absorbed). All this is solved with coil overs ;)

If you want standard springs then try a place like MM Organization as @Devinda_Z had mentioned. You could try the agent but then they are certainly going to be pricey. As for used parts...no idea...you will have to walk around the usual areas. I kind of feel as if they will want to sell you the entire strut (for some reason I have mental images of piles and piles of entire struts at these places) but then you can always negotiate your way in to getting what you want with these guys.

It came with these yellow springs.About 1 inch     lowered with normal shocks.I could live with it but since i replaced the shocks with kyb Now it’s too bumpy.

It does not matter if the shocks are KYB or Toyota replacements...if the shocks are standard and the coils are lowering..then it will not work. Irrespective of whatever brand you need short stroke shocks.
