Ok I thought you were only looking at the other parts.
Moog parts are good factory replacements.
If you can afford new insulators and seats Id go ahead and buy them. If your springs are that worn the other parts have taken the same beating. Replacing seats and insulators should ensure no metal on metal or squeeking and creaking noises.

Just wanted to give you an update. I ordered new replacement coil springs from rockauto.com and had them and a leveling kit installed today. The guy said something was up with my springs. The new ones brought the rear up about 1/2-3/4 of an inch. He said I won't have any more problems with the springs falling out cause these were really snug when he put them in

Give them a few days driving around and they should settle a little bit, maybe a 1/4" lower.

Just so long as they don't fall out again while on a lift. I know the rear feels as though its more "springy" when I hit a bump or go over a speed bump hopefully that's not a bad thing. I am thinking about putting in some air bags that go inside the coil spring later on. Maybe that will give me some added support when hauling the car trailer

Yea it should help with a car trailer. I used to be a big fan of air bags for hauling, still am when using a coil sprung suspension.
