we are currently running 225 LR and 200 RR, driver thinks that we should go to 175 RR, would having that much split cause a problem??

Ok, dumb question, how come everyone puts the softer spring on the right? I would think the softer on the left would increase the % on that corner, which is what we usually want (no weight-jacks).

Hutch - The stiffer the spring, the more weight it supports. As you stiffen up the LR it holds that corner up more adding cross.

hobby - I think racer17 ment to say put the 200 on the LR not LF. (man would that be interesting!)

I have ran up to 100 lbs of rear split. There is more to it than the what the spring numbers are. You gotta do what you gotta do to make your car work the best and if that is more than 25 lbs of rear split then so be it. What I notice on here a lot is everybody says all the same numbers, which is great for starting points, but unless you are building a clone of something don't be afraid to experiment and try something different. You never know when you might hit on something that makes your car awesome and no one will ever figure it out cause it is out of the norm.

It gets real dry here and we run as high as a 400-lr and 200-rr with 4"rear stagger,this works great.
