We currently run the basic 650 LF and 750 RF spring set up. What can I anticipate by swaping these two? will it plant the LF and free the car up on entry? or, transfer weight ,loading the RF and cause a tight/push condition. I guess I am looking for some theory behind this. Thanks in advance.

It will make you looser on entry and tighter on exit. It takes some getting used to, but I have been running this setup the last 2 seasons. You will probably find you will need more front brake as well.

Sounds kinda like what I need. Do you get heat in the LR with this?

I tried that setup for a while but was getting problems with too much rf travel and binding on rough tracks causing un settled feedback , fast on a smooth track though, did go back to stiffer right front for consistant feedback.

The right front spring has got to be stiff enough that it does not bottom out.
