Stock metric front and rear>
A few folks have tried this, it seems like you would lose cross weight. If you reverse the front springs (lighter spring on the right front), how get left rear bite in the car? Ride height changes? Would you need increase the lr rear spring rate? Add more static weight to the lr? Dryslick changes?

I don't think I would try that I would fool around with different spring rates but I will always run the heavier one to the right

if every thing is under control your not fast enough

you'll need more static cross with that setup. works well on low banked tracks.

my springs are
lf - 1250 rf - 1050
lr - 225 rr - 200
works great for me on a 72 chevelle with no sway bar
