Think of a shock and a coil spring combined into one unit with the shock in the center, the spring wrapped around, sharing common mounting surfaces on either side.
They would add more "spring" in the back but I would be concerned about fit as the shocks today are pretty close to the inner fenders. I assume you have a 67 since you are talking monoleafs. Wheel hop was bad on 67s mainly due to both shocks being on the front of the axle. 68's and later went to staggered shocks as well as multileafs.
For the ride situation, I think I would just buy new springs. No suggestions for the wheel hop.
