Ok here are some pics of the coil mod. Longer but softer springs. Had to be a bit creative with the compressors but they slipped right in. Take a look:

The ride is still tight with the air shocks in, but smooth and no longer has the feeling of riding in a rattling train car. Its nice GM left something to play with the sprung control arms in the rear.


BTW the easiest way to remove the rear spring is to put the car on stands, take off tire, use jack under the control arm to lift it and compress the spring, remove the shock and the link attachments and then jack the control arm up as high as possible the rest of the way. With the spring in the full compressed position, put on one the spring compressor and tighten the remaining small amount. When you relieve the jack the spring with virtually fall out by itself. About 30 minute job/side to remove.
