Air shock work fine on the Coronet. I have them on my 57 Dodge and they are great. I also put 57 Dodge Station wagon rear leaf springs in a long time ago, and that stiffens the ride without changing the ride height too much. Between the air shocks and the heavier springs, the Dodge stays more or less level even with the Airstream in tow. As far as new and re-arched springs, there are several places in LA that make/re-arch springs. I went to Warren Spring years ago for some spring bushings and saw their operation. Interesting to see. I also purchase new coil springs for my 55 Chrysler from a place called Coil Spring Specialties. Good luck, Mopar Randy
