Coil spring/leaf spring advice

Where's the best place to get 'em? '63 Galaxie, and I want to keep the ride at just about stock level; I'm not much for lowriders. Anyway, I've heard PST coils are crap from several places, but I've never used them. Thought I'd ask around and see if anybody had any advice to throw my way.

I thought springs and things had the best prices. Not sure where they were located, shipping was the possible killer for me here in CA.

I would get the leafs re-arched by a local spring shop, and front coils rarely wear out, are they sagging due to the front end bushings being worn? Rebuild the front end and see how it looks after that. Some of the new coils are of questionable quality. I have a spring rater, and I have rated new vs. old, and you would not believe how far off new ones can be.
