You can start with this. Using less spring coil, would lower it. The Front of the car, would be my concern, because, unless it has separate lower control arms, you are going to have to cut, and hinge pin, to allow movement. Others may have suggestions, just getting you a starting point

First, what is your skill level Kyle? What you are asking is seriously advanced modeling.

And what kind of suspension under what kind of car? Kinda "working" leaf springs are fairly easy to do, but the independent suspensions do indeed require more advanced skills.

I suppose that info would be important LOL. I'm not the most skilled person, but I'm fairly skilled

Nope the back is even easier. Create some brackets so that the front of part #22 can pivot where it joins the crossmember. Then just use some real springs in place of the plastic coil springs.
