What if you have a 1200 LF and 275 LR springs. 1000 RF and 225 RR springs.
That would mean lower dynamic ride heights on the Right than if the the heavier springs were on the Right side. Is this good or bad and why?

The spring rating doesn't effect the height of the spring. I like running the LF of the car a little lower because it puts more weight towards the left side of the car entering the corner, dipping it into the corner. this is done by spring height, not weight, or tire size.

Yes, the spring rate doesn't control the height of the spring setting still. A 1200 pound spring has less travel than a 1000 pound spring. I'm looking for the dynamic answer.

Yes, You would get "lower dynamic ride heights" with the softer springs. That is a long winded way of saying "more roll"
