I run a metric imca hobby stock, front springs 12" cut down to whatever my ride heights need to be. and in the rear I have just bought a quick performance ford 9 inch rearend, wonder if I should run 11" or 13" rear springs, afco also sells 12" pigtail springs, so wondering what would be better, 11,12, or 13" rear springs, please give me your input, Racer98

I have 13" hypercoils in the rear of this one, the 11's work also but I like the roll I get with the 13's.

We ran 11" in the rear of my 85' regal, and ended up having to add spacers to get ride height and scaling numbers correct, so I am sure I will switch to 12'' and see what happens. Would like more roll, too. Up front are 9 1/2" and adjustable spacers welded up inside the frame.
