There are so many variables that affect chassis lift springrates, bar lengths ,angles ,it's all relitive.
when you think about springs you can't
just think about the way they affect the car in compression .you have to think about the affects on the car in extension also.
a soft spring can only put so much pressure
on the ground.
BUT THE THING THAT HAS THE MOST AFFECT ON HOW SMOOTH A CAR LOOKS IS THE DRIVER .
HOW SMOOTH ARE THEY ON AND OFF THE GAS AND BRAKES.
