Question 300TD Rear Suspension

Hi All.. A couple of months ago, I picked up a 79 300TD in need of engine rebuild.. My plan was to swap the block from my 78 300D -- it's got a bad case of the rusties, but relately low mileage -- and the head off of the 300TD.. Thus, I'll be able to keep the hydro-leveling system deployed. However, when I took the head off of the 300TD, I discovered a crack in the 3rd cylinder. Clearly my options are: (1) get the head repaired, or (2) look for another head (if I understand correctly are getting and expensive).. Either way, I'm probably going to spend much more than the car is worth.. My question is: Although this is not the best option, has anyone, or know of anyone that has had some success with converting the hydro-leveling system to a conventional spring/shock system? In the archives, there was some mention about an air shock system?

Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated..
