Can someone tell me if 5.5 diameter springs will fit a '72 Chevelle? Also, would a 1400 right front and a 1200 left front, and a 250 right rear, and 225 left rear be a good baseline?

A '72 chevelle takes 5" springs. As for your set-up, it's going to vary track-to-track, car-to-car, and driver-to-driver. If you're looking at a 3500# car on a 3/8 track with some banking, I would recommend reversing your rear springs for a base line.
