I was thinking about trying something with front springs
two 1200 lbs springs in the front and 175 and 150 rear springs with easy up front shocks and a #4 shock on the left rear
what do you think????

your rear is good but the front need at least 100# split

Start with the 900# and the 1000# in the front and adjust from there. Eddie

i have always run 900 1000lbs springs before
BUT why not run no split in the front and see what happens
never run 1200lbs springs before

What iam thinking is that it would be tight in and off

Your not going to get faster if you don't try new things now and then. If it doesn't work out for ya then just change it back.

As far as how the change in your front spring rates will affect your car....increasing your LF spring rate or decreasing your RF spring rate to even up the front will decrease the dynamic cross as the car pitches forward on entry and will increase the dynamic cross as the car pitches to the rear on exit. This should tighten you going in (if your brakes are biased to the rear) and tighten you coming off just like you suspected. Hope I've helped.
