What would be the correct brands and part #s to go with to get a 83 cutlass 2door v6 with ac back to stock ride height and ride quality ?

Seems like a rather flaccid plan.

At a minimum go for an F41 inspired solution.

How so ? Just trying to figure out what springs get me back to factory ride height. No need for anything performance oriented its just a v6, if i decide to LS swap in the future ill go coilovers. But for now its just a cruiser and my GN handles my need for speed .

I'm sure the guys at rock auto, advance auto parts, Napa, autozone, etc etc etc could help you out.

Have you tried looking at all?

KYB gas adjust shocks are about as cheap as I'd go before you end up with total garbage. They are still pretty floaty.

I checked rock auto and they only showed a name brand for the rear. It was either moog or ac deco the rest I didn’t recognize. Either way I know there are several options for our cars I’m looking for as close to stocks specs as possible If possible

Moog 5664s up front, 5610s out back, and a set of KYB Gas-A-Justs. All available from Amazon, RA, and Summit.
