Rear suspension - Coil overs for Spitfire Mk3?

Triumph Spitfire Mk3 1968 powered by Hayabusa engine.
Upgrade of the rear suspension:

I have decided it was time to upgrade the rear suspension with a full CV jointed axle setup along with another diff with LSD and better ratio (3,55:1). The Leafspring, diff and the swing axles will be removed and my goal is to go the full independent rear suspension route.
These modifications will be custom made.

But, I have not found the right suspension yet, i.e. I am looking for Coil Overs or a good solution for the rear suspension.

Any good advice's greatly appreciated.

QA1 is a US company. I have their coilovers in my 4 link system. It may be easier for you to access GAZ shocks and coilovers as they are a UK based company.

strange engineering make a nice 12 point adjustable for a decent price. I have them front and rear in my 69 spit but the car is not finished yet and is a v8 swap so what I run for springs is of no help to you.
