Those are the ones. Ty is a member here, and had those springs made for us. His site was originally strictly Bonnevilles, and he has one himself

Should be okay, But it'll handle a little weird. If you're not racing it I'd call it safe.

I'd switch out the struts with the springs. You'll end up removing the struts to do the springs and with the lower springs you'll wear out the stock struts in a hurry.
All the Bonne'* come with sway bars from the factory, once you take delivery check the RPO codes in the trunk for which suspension you have.
The RPO listing is in the TechInfo.
