How does installing different height rear springs effect weight transfer to the rear. For Instance, if you normally run 13" springs, then change to 11", then readjust ride height, you should gain weight transfer because the top of the spring is lower in relation to the center of gravity. The opposite should occur when installing a taller spring. Am I way off base on my thinking???

Thanks, Randy

Never thought about that. I do know weight transfer is affected by ballast placement, spring rates, wheel off sets and Roll Centers, but I don't know about spring heights.

if it ain't fun, then don't run
