In one of my Steve Smith books it says to increase the lf spring rate 100-150 #s if your car is loose on dry slick.

It says running reverse spring split is ok if the tracks not high banked.

"It says it will keep the lf from lifting up too far and thus keeps the wt at the left front corner. If a car pushes going into a corner reduce the rf spring rate".

I guess I dont see how a spring effects it lifting too far???????? also increasing the lf would reduce your crossweight on entry and loosen entry????

what type of car you running and what does it weigh? And what springs you running?

If you increase the lf spring rate it will tighten the entry, this is because it will decrease dynamic wedge, in other words the rf spring will be affecting less weight transfer. So to put it short the increase of lf spring will tighten the entry of the car, which can help keep the car under you on dryslick when you enter the corner.
