There's a reputable spring shop in my city I'll use for leafs. The fronts are saggy and have a bunch of spring boosters in them. What about the rear spring bushings?

If the rears are leaf springs and you want bushings, that shop will have them or can get them easily
Bushings are the same as the leaf springs. Order by dimension. The cost of leaf spring bushing replacement is mostly in labor. The bushings are rather inexpensive.

Thanks. Ended up ordering springs and bushings from the local supplier. They're actually a little more expensive than buying them from the USA (thank our horribly uncompetitive economy) but less hassle and no risk of getting slammed with duties.

I had done a little investigation into air suspension but I'll be keeping the leaf springs and putting the money into A/C and a new vinyl top.
