I'm looking for some setup help for a '73 Nova. I'm running a 3/8 mile dirt track slightly banked. I need to find out what front springs anyone is running. I have the shocks and leafs down but need front spring rates/heights. Any help would be appreciated

i raced a 77 nova with a lot of sucess. i found that about a 1300 rf and 1000 lf spring worked great for any track we went to we usually ran on a 1/3 mild banking dirt track. the car was very very tight when you get off the gas so you had to stay on it. that is the way i like my car though. to loosen it some you may try a 1200 rf. either should work. i did not mess with ride hights or even scale it ever i guess everything just worked out right. i would set my ride hieghts around 6 inches then adjust for cross wieght. good luck
