Ok this isnt a hobby stock its a 4 banger BUT it weighs about 2500. Im not quite sure anymore added more roll cage hasnt hit scales since. I want to get rid of the stock junkers that have spring rubbers and tensioners in them. My rf has 2 rubbers and 1 tensioner my question is.

Can i get a 12" FRONT spring. And also what rate. Im thinking about a 1000. Car used to dive on RF HARD. Now it is good. I like the adjustability of the rubbers and all but i want to do it "right" also...

I have about 13" rears what rates should i have on them. Im thinking 225 lf and 200 rr any suggestions. No i dont what each wheel weight is now. I dont have a set of scales. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was going to but i call it the mini hobby stock there is hobbys that weigh less around here and i figured you or someone else could really help me out here since it is close to a hobby and cant match other ppls things cuz no1 else runs this kind of car so. Kinda tricky. Is there such thing as those springs tho?

It is a 1983 Dodge Challenger. It has about 100" wheelbase if that matters. Run a 3/8 medium bank track. Also would i need lighter springs because of the strut? Or would there be a difference between a strut setup and a regular shock spring setup. The struts are new.
