Just wanted to get some opinions in how much split to run between the rates of the rear springs. Right now we have 200LR and 175RR and wondering if going to a stiffer (225) LR would help the car coming off the corner.

We are trying to find a way to build some more heat in the left rear. I thought that since the spring is mounted in front of the axle when the axle rotated it would build more bite dynamically with the stiffer spring than with the softer one and help drive the car off.

Any idea or suggestions?

If you are happy with the car every where else, that is what I would do. You can try several things, but increasing the left rear spring will change entry and apex the least. There is not a magic number for spring split, your set-up and driving style may dictate something different for your car VS some one elses car. Good luck.
