i need some help on what front springs i should use in my car. i'm running a 84 chevy caprice in class where we turn both dirictions on the track. the track is a banked 1/4 mile. i have removed the the sway bar should i have done this? i'm going to run the stock rear springs because because i cant add weight. i was also thinking about makeing a spacer for the top of my spring to raise the front end for weight transfer. is that a good thing or not? any help is welcome first GM prodouct i have built. thanks

In mt 77 monte carlo i had but sold i ran lf 1000 and rf 1200 they was 5 1/2 x 12 but on the 80 models you wanna go with a 5 x 10.. the best thing to do is pull your front springs out and messure them. I've never used any spacers or anything but if your gonna do that order some cheater jacks. adjustable spring spacers. if you need anymore info just write back on here....
