i have a 2600lb late model stock camaro front clip jig rear multileaf suspension
these are my springs
1200LF 900RF
194LR 166RR
with this setup car rotates around the lf spring which is good for hard corner entry and braking

but i need to tighten it up just a little when i initially hit the brakes as it wants to dewedge the car on entry

please advise what you ya"ll do to tighten up car on initial braking?????

Might I suggest going even lighter on your front springs? We are actually running 900 lf and 800 rf. Car working very good with about 2.5 - 3" of shock travel. Warrior car with Ford stub. Just a thought.
