This is what it is supposed to look like.
As far as real coilovers, there is not a "kit" per se. People usually do the conversion by going to a junkyard and pulling the rear suspension from a Gen 1.5 w-body (Chevy Lumina or Monte Carlo) and swapping in the complete rear ends. A lot of people who have done it say its really good, but personally, I've seen doing this to a Gen 1 car fail when the strut punches through the upper strut mount of the body. Yours being a 95 might be "new" enough to handle the added stress. Basically you will need the rear struts, springs, and upper strut mount of the coil setup, you will remove the rear monoleaf, and swap out the struts and rear sway bar.
Personally, I would just go to a junkyard and look for a car with a good monoleaf, or look for a replacement one online. Its not too hard to swap out the spring. Disconnect the trailing arm, disconnect the 2 lateral links, and remove the 2 hanger guide thingies, and then you can just pull the whole knuckle assembly outwards. pull the old spring out, then when you put the new one in, I would get the moog leaf spring bushings, put one side all the way in, then use a jack and a piece of 2x4 to push the spring up and get the knuckle back into place. Once the 2 lateral links are reattached, just let pressure off the jack, connect the trailing arms and the other other small things, and you are good to go (make sure you put the second spring pad in before removing the jack).

also, going back and looking at yours, I believe your monoleaf is actually totally broken off and its not the mount that you need to fix, its replacing the whole spring.http://www.ebay.com/itm/CUTLASS-SUPREME-GRAND-PRIX-LUMINA-CAR-REGAL-FIBERGLASS-MONO-LEAF-SPRING-/331670249547?hash=item4d3916604b&vxp=mtr
Oh I see, thank you, that's very informative n.n
Reading a post from someone else made it sound like the entire rear end had to come appart to change out the mono-leaf, but that doesn't sound that bad... Especially if I bring a sawzall with me to the salvage yard
No one in their right minds would go to the salvage yard for one of the POS stock trailing arms X3 I do like the idea of keeping the monoleaf, it's an.... interesting setup.
Ah crud... I just went out to look again, and you're right, the spring is (mostly) broken off... about half of the spring, top to bottom, still reaches into the slot for it. The other part is broken off...
I'm still going to give forging a boot for it a try, though. It won't cost me anything but a half hour, and a few pennies worth of steel... If/when it doesn't work, I'll do what you suggest. Thanks :3
