First thing that is needed is the weight on the rear axle in order to estimate the spring rate needed..There are companies like this for springs:

Pohl Spring Works, Inc - Coil Springs

there is probably one like this in your area..On the shocks the shock valving has a great deal to do with ride quality so adjustable shocks are in order to tune the ride..

Hope this helps.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
