Corvette Suspension - coil over shocks

Hi everyone, again my car is a 56 studebaker golden hawk that I have installed '94 corvette suspension, a 454 big block chevy, and 6 speed camaro transmission.

My current project is to replace the transverse leaf suspension with coil overs for better adjustability and hopefully performance. My issue is that there does not seem to be alot of people converting their '94 corvette suspension, therefor I cannot find alot of specific coil overs designed for the corvette suspension. So my question is does anybody know of some "hot rod" coil overs that would work with my vette suspension or some more options I can explore?. The mounts look pretty standard so maybe somebody knows of a generic "chevy" coil over that would mount up ok? Thanks in advance for any help, if needed I can post pictures.

I have used the single adjustable QA1 aluminum body coilovers with poly mounts. If space is tight use the shock that requires a 10" spring. If more space is available the 12" spring unit should work.

I designed and built a double shear lower mount that attaches to the original lower shock mount and lower trailing arm mount. If you are interested in a part like that, PM me and we can work something out.
