What's the banking?

I'd go:

1200 RF 76 afco shock
1000 LF 77 afco shock
175 RR 94 afco shock
200 LR 94 afco shock

I've gone as light as 850 on front springs and as heavy as 1800 (heavier for higher banking). You could go with heavier rear springs too, but this should get you in the ballpark. Can you run weight-jacks in the front? Shoot for 51-53% rear weight

We are on a bigger track and run similar numbers, however tend to be heavier on the rear springs. Usually to 225/200. I've never tried anything other than 1000/1100 on the front but think anywhere between 900 to 1200 with no more than a 200 lbs difference would be the area I'd play around with and try to stay in. JMO.
