I've been looking for springs for this old shock and can't find any. Does anyone know if there's a company that still makes springs for the '95 Judy?
Are there any springs from a newer shock that can be used?
Check with your LBS for Mountain Speed's Speed Springs. Their site no longer shows these in production.

Forget it! The only chance you'll have is by checking around at your LBS's to see if anyone has some "old stock" items in the back! If you do happen to find replacement springs or elastomers for that fork, you'll still have an eight year old fork with old technology. For the cost of the springs, you can get a bottom of the line 2002 or 2003 fork that is BETTER than the '95 Judy.
Here's just one example a 2002 Judy C http://pricepoint.com/product1379.html
it's only $60, a pair of springs is gonna run you $40-50.
Cruise around the site, there are some Manitous for under $75, and a nice Marzocchi for about $169.

I figured that there wasn't much of a chance. Although, I did find a shop that had a dust-covered shoebox full of old Judy parts. After picking out what I wanted they asked me "how much do you want to pay for this stuff?"
Thanks for the info and the link...might be time to upgrade.
