Eh wagon rear springs

I have a eh wagon I am doing up and it seams to have a jacked up rear end like they used to do back in the day, I was wondering do the sedan springs fit or what model springs will fit as it seams to have around a 6 inch fall, I can use lowering blocks but need different springs to start with. any help or suggestions appreciated thanks

Have the shackles been flipped down? On an EH the shackles at the rear of the springs should go upwards from the body mount to the spring.
The shackles should be about 3" long (75mm).
It was quite common to fit longer shackles (up to 6" and more) to lift the back. These will hang down to the spring. Maybe your car has these.
Are there helper springs under the stock springs? These are bolted to the bottom of the stock springs and don't sit flat against the stock spring.

When you flip them back up make sure they won't hit the body.
If they do they are longer than stock shackles.
Stock EH shackles will usually flip themselves back up when hit the first bump, so yours might be a bit longer if they stayed down.

Yes, but be careful.
You may have to jack the body to make it easier, or at worse, undo them and turn them up the correct way.
