I currently have a Larry Shaw chassis with a multi-leaf setup in it. I am changing over to mono-leafs and want to know a good start point for coil over spring weights? Any suggestions?

We run a 175# and a 200# on my monoleaf Ellis.

I had the best luck with 200-LR and 175-RR. I also ran 175-LR and 150-RR, hooked up better on the slick, but a ton of chassis roll. If you want to try something different,run a thicker leaf on the LR than the RR. I ran 20244 afco's on the LR and 20242 on the RR. The thinner leaf on the RR will wrap more under acceleration and braking giving the car some loose roll steer getting in and tightening it up a little coming off.
