I run the stock springs except for the right front. I know someone can help you with your question. I'm new to this so I don't have the info. you need. Most people run 1100 l/f, 1200 r/f, 250 l/r, 225 r/r. I think the 13" springs make a car set to tall. Some drivers have said the 11 & 10 1/2" springs collapse. I'd contact a good racing spring company most drivers around here use AFCO. I'm sure they can answer your question.

Racer17j, I have the same setup as you but havent raced it yet. The LR fender rubs the tire when I just bounce the car. I havent cut anything out of the fender for tire clearence yet. How much did you have to cut out? Or do I have a different problem? I also run IMCA hobby stock.

Thanks
