1967 el camino too low?

I want to raise the back of the el camino by about 2 inches. I car already has drop springs in the rear, (I believe they are 2" drops). My question is, should I change out the rear springs or just buy Gabriel air adjustable shocks to raise it 2 inches? If I go with the air shocks, what will it do to the ride quality?

From my experience forget about the air shocks and get the proper springs. Then you won't have to worry about blowing out a shock or the air line coming out or braking or blowing out. And they don't ride that well either. JMO
Hang on to the lowering springs and sell them to someone that wants to ride lower. You might even run across someone that has what you need and trade you never know.
