We just ordered new shocks and springs for our car. the car has a camaro front clip and a minimum wait of 3200lbs. the track is a 3/8 medium banked mostly dry and slick. This is what we ordered 97 shock for left rear 96 for right rear 78 for right front and a 77 for left front. for rear spring we got 200 for right and 250 for left. Is this close to what we need if not what do you suggest.

I really dont know about a camaro but on my sportsman car I ran LF 1000 RF 1200 LR 250 RR 200. I used pro shocks the 1's that went in stock location and I got the shocks through midwest motorsports 1-800-262-5033

I ran a metric chassis for a few years, and I dunno if the front suspension goemetry's the same, but I ran a 900 LF 1000 RF and 175s across the back. DMA, you might wanna take note of this..the thing was a rocket on a dry track..I think the softer springs did it. Most of the other guys were running stuff like what you've got, and a lot of em had way more motor than I did. The best thing I ever did, though was run the Koni adjustable stock-mount shocks. They fit the stock mounting location rules, and dont make you buy a dozen shocks to try and figure out how to make your car work.

Good Luck,
