Those are really soft springs on the front,i like at least a 1200 on the right front especially a car that heavy,on the rears i'd run more like a 200 right rear and a 250 left rear leaf,that spring combo should keep the tires from rubbing.

I agree. i run a 1050 on the rf. i have adjustable coils on the rear, plus a 4 link to get twist on the rear. if i roll over too much i tighten the rr up and increase my tire pressure a little.if it continues try a different approach to the corner.
