With a car like that there's only one reason why you'd need a new spring and that's if your existing one is broken or damaged.

As for the nice ride, the best ride you're going to get will come from stock or OE-eqivalent aftermarket shocks. Do not install shocks intended for high-performance driving or racing.

Lastly, it was not stated if this car has heavy-duty suspension or not. If it does, there will be a significant ride improvement if you downgrade to the base springs and stabilizer bars.
