my first car went like this.1200lb spring RF
1000lb spring LF. A 175 lb spring RR and a 150 lb LR. Then 2 inch offset rims,on right side of car and 3inch offset on left side.Tires you want a 60 series in width.With a one to two inch "height" difference per side.To keep your car from "Hobby Horseing" use "Oil" filled shock with 50/50 or70/50 let off.Not sure what that means,but they work.Make sure you have a good rear end gear. That should do it. From a first timer to a first timer.Hope this is what you wanted.

I agree with Gordan3E except I'd run rear springs between 225# to 300#.With a 25 or 50# split.Running lighter than 225# will allow the car to roll to much.

Hope this helps.

to help with body roll take out the rubbers on the body mounts just let it sit on the fram it will help.
