My new issue. (Coil Springs)

My car rides rough, so I decided for the cost, I may as well try some softer springs. Long story short... Planned on ordering some from speedway tonight, and after double checking my springs are 13 x 4.5 not the common 5 inches.

Where the heck do I get springs in this size?

I have a 27 roadster. It's a speedway kit and was told it was originally built in the late 70's. I've heard people say Corvair springs were commonly used back then, but my research makes me believe that Corvair springs are not the 4.5 inches diameter either. I have found Jeep/off road coil springs, but I would assume they are VERY stiff. not to mention long. I'm no physics expert, but wouldn't cutting them make them stiffer?

My spring looks like it was possibly cut to the 13 inches. But I'm at a loss as to what to do,

Any suggestions?
