W108 Suspension Springs Search

I am looking for front and rear suspension springs that are stiffer than the stock one's on my W108.
What is available?
Who has them?
Is there a company that makes custom springs for W108?

Many thanks

Jim Villers has this video on springs and suspension. He tells a company that makes springs.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

the video is a nice "suspension 101" piece.
I am familiar with our friend from Minnesota, who makes custom springs - as a matter of fact, I have already spoken with him a little while back.

My hope in placing my inquiry here, is to see if any other sources are out there besides scouring the Eibach catalog for a "suitable" alternative. Eibach makes a fanatastic product, but they do not have a "direct-fit" part for a W108 (based off my initial review of their catalog).
The key is that the front and rear springs have to work together and that is where the fun starts.
