a sagging T-bird

Assuming that there isn't just something flat out broken, the sag is most likely simply worn out springs. When you put air-shocks on, I can understand why the ride wouldn't be the best. Those shocks would be doing their normal shock absorber thing PLUS taking up some of the structural support load that springs and all should be carrying.
My recommendation would be to find a spring supplier somewhere near you. Sometimes new springs would be available...sometimes they are available 'rebuilt.'
Springs from a wrecking yard may or may not fix the problem...after all, they'll be old too and may sag just as much.
Good luck.

Suspension question for FORD nuts

I have a 1979 Ford Thunderbird that I have done alot of work to over the years. The rear end sagged so I fixed that with air shocks. I really never cared for the quality of ride they provided, not to mention that they leaked. I put replacement shocks back in this past summer, but again, the car sags. I did like the look of the rear end jacked up a bit, so I was wondering what I should do. Will replacement springs do the trick, or do I need to go with a higher spring, say from an LTD wagon, or put blocks in the springs etc. Help please!!!!!!!
