The problem was correctly diagnosed; the shocks which were not properly pressed and released in a balanced manner resulting in one side of the car responding fine to the unevenness of the road while the other slow in response. Secondly it can be due to different grips of the tires, which also has been addressed. The car should be all okay now, if not, get both the front springs checked for any problem.
Regarding the suspension softening issue, do you feel any heave rattle sounds from the suspension on a rough road like "Garr Garr" etc. If yes, the suspension is really softened and you have to identify the faulty parts including ball joints, tie rod ends and rubber bushings and replace them where necessary.
Regarding the dashboard and steering of cielo, if your existing dashboard is in reasonable condition then no need to replace it, but take it to poshish maker for repair. If you are still interested in cielo dashboard, you can easily get it replaced too, but mind you that the dashboard is made of the same stuff (hardboard) as that of the racers dashboard and after a few years it will also deteriorate. You can get the exact price quote by referring to contacts at page-3 of this forum. Yes steering wheel replacement is a good idea (I hope you were referring to the steering wheel only and not the power steering setup)
