Take a search in the AACA Forum for post war Buicks ,technical..
Look at 55 special shock absorber source.
There are some good ideas,Pics for the swap to Tele Shocks.

Fill the shocks with hydraulic jack oil. You might have to do it a few times to get oil down into the cylinders. If leaking badly but functioning well with a full load of fluid, just reseal: LINK
Functioning lever shocks are better than any tube shock.
Replace the panhard bar bushings to keep the rear from steering the car.
