Rear shocks-87 300TD

I bought this car earlier this year with rear air shocks in place of self-levelling shocks.Right rear is leaking due to interference from sway bar.Has anyone used coil-over shocks on these wagons,if so,do you know maker,part nos.,or other practical solutions?Thanks.

I put in a fresh set of rear springs from a newer model TE, and got perfect level on the car.
what's wrong with your original SLS? are the lines still present? I will be parting out a wagon, and may have some original parts you could use to repair yours.

Hey vstech,the lines are still in place,tho rusty.I have no idea the condition of the rest of the system,or the whereabouts of the original tubes.I did see some coil-overs @ JC Whitney,but they didn't give vehicle specs.(listed 20 different #'s as universal).At $70 a pair,it seems practical,if I can find a pair to fit.
