Once a coil spring goes belly-up, I don't think there's anything practical to do but replace it. Even re-arching leaf springs is a pretty complicated, expensive procedure if it's done correctly.

Check with Deaver Suspension in Santa Ana. They may have some suggestions.

I installed stock height, new coil springs in the back and got a new track arm (pan hard bar). I think it sits more level than before. Rides a lot better too. Next step is to replace the front springs and ball joints.

Also going to list some 2” drop springs; these did not work out for me. Couldn’t get the wheels mounted, tires a bit too wide.
