I've never seen a coil around the rear shocks on an Eagle before. Interesting way to address sagging leafs.

The shocks with the coils are probably Monroe 58510, I have them on my Eagles and they work great.  Definitely a good way to assist those tired leaf springs!

Cool!
They'll likely be my next shocks. Then I can forget about the tired springs.
