Thats a stiff set up,the springs maybe too stiff to allow the frontend to absorb the holes and ruts,softer springs may work better on a rough track

yeh Wayne, you are deffinately to stiff in the front. like racer 17J said put that 1250 in the right front and a 1000 or a 1050 in the left front. I like to stay within a 200# or less split in the front when i can.

17j is absolutely right - I run a 1000# on the left front and 1250# on the RF and have no problems with bouncing at all! Good luck!
