O boy where to start ill help you out on the offset question and ill let somebody else tackel the spring question cause you are running leaf springs and i havent run them for years
OK first things first offsets if you put a 2inch offset on the right rear it has atendancey to loosen the car upnow you can do different things with offset like putting a 4inch on the left rear and leaving the 2inch on the right side to tighten the car up on entry and putting a 4inch on the right side and leaving the 4inch on the left side to tighten it up on exit if your car is really loose and you need to tighten it up a ton you can put a two inch on the left side and 4inch on the right that will really tighten the car up
So basically moving the right side in and the left side out will tighten the car up and moving the right sider out and the left side in will lossen it up
Hope this helps

you never know how fast you are going when your in the lead, until you blow the announcers hat off!!!
