Definitely loose the sway bar. When I ran my camaro the 1st year I ran a 900 on the RF and a 700 on the LF. But it was a bit loose when it dried out. A friend of my dads won the championship that year. One day I say him at my dads place and asked him what springs he ran because he always seemed to be fast when it dried out. He told me to change to an 1100 on the RF and to put my 900 on the LF. Needless to say I won the championship the following year and was completely happy with those spring rates.
