I'd suspect that you are tight in both turns, but breaking the rear loose to compensate for the push...Leave the weight in the left rear and take some cross out with air or a spring height adjustment on the right front (less corner weight there) or the right rear (more there) Look at your ride heights and use that to make the choice which one to change.

taking cross out will make the tight in, loose off condition worse. Increasing your cross will loosen you up going in and tighten you up coming off. You might wanna try dropping your RR spring down to about a 225 and keep your LR at a 250.

I'll agree to disagree. Let us know what you come up with. (But I know I'm RIGHT!!)

Thanks for the help.
Last season we had the 270 in the LR and the 250 in the RR. The car would never come off the RR. Switched the springs and setup LR & RR equal. Then, put about 40lbs of LR in using ballast. This made us pretty good, using DOT tires with 2" of stagger. Trying to get it on scales this week. Got the 225lbs spring to try. Wanted to try softer springs anyway. Will let you know what we find.
