St. Louis spring can make whatever you want. I had them make some new main leaves for my s10 axle swap. I set it up with wagoner lift springs, needed a little more shackle angle, so I had them make leaves that were 2 inches longer, 1/2 inch more arch, and the center pin 1/8 inch farther forward. They make springs in the morning, I think they said they shut the forge down noonish. Ask them to show you around.

Burke Spring in Danville is a good shop. I'm pretty sure they will discourage your plan though. My understanding is that old stock springs will only hold the arch for a little while and then will sag back unless you take them apart, heat, arch and re-temper them. It would be cheaper to order a set of lift springs...
