Have a friend whose running 800 LF 850 RF on a HOT sims mod. I seem to think that's too stiff. Has a 175 LF 150 RR. Car is loose getting in corner and bad tight when he picks throttle back up. Any suggestions?

Too much cross weight and/or too much LR bite will cause what you are describing.

What stub is on that chassis, If it's a metric w/metric lowers it might be to soft and if it has Nova lowers it should be in the ball park. If it's a older Chevelle stub they would be alittle on the high side. All and all i think it's more of a Cross weight/lr bite issue like FirstLight7 said, but that's just my 2cents

With the hot car I suggest a 950 rf 900 lf and 175 across the rear.
