stiffer lr spring will make it tighter on the gas. the stiffer rr will make it tighter on entry but looser on the gas.

With an ideal situation the left rear is more likely to be stiffer. Since most people are springing to static weight of a car, and the left rear should be heavier, then a stiffer spring is used to obtain the same suspension travel as the right rear which should be lighter and have a softer spring. It is the balance that creates the going in. weight on left go left. weight on right go right. That philophy tends to rule. If you can give me a more specific question I will give you perhaps some things to look for.
