1968 Camaro Rear Suspension Upgrade

Hey Everyone,

I recently noticed that my rear passenger side of the car is about 2 inches lower than the rear drivers. Upon further investigation I've concluded that the rear air adjustable shock has failed.

My guess is the shock was supporting the car and inevitably failed due to age or excess weight/force on the air shock. The leaf springs look original and Im not sure of the age of the air shocks, but look like their ready to be retired.

With that said I'd like to keep the taller rear stance and don't really want to lower the front at this point. Looking at replacement leaf springs they all seem to indicate lowering the car.

Any options or suggestions for leaf springs to keep the rear end on the higher side?
With respect to adjustable shocks, I assume you are not supposed to adjust them to raise the car. Correct.
