Probably a 100lb split 650 to 750 on the left and 750 to 850 on the right. You could also buy a 950 and experiment with that

We run a 650 lf and 600 rf. This lets the car roll. Try that. Use your shock travel to see the movement in the corner. If the shocks are not compressing lighten the spring until it starts to roll. Just leave enough room so it doesn't bottom out. gl ltr spde

What are you running for rear springs? Ever try heavier RR than LR? THX

Definitely put the 650 LF and 750 RF on for springs. I'm assuming its a mono-leaf car. You might want to make a full leaf LR and mono/coil RR if you can. My experience has been that leaf cars like ride height (7" or so). Get the chassis up in the air and it will roll over like rover! I was also running about 53-54% cross, but that fit my driving style. Good luck and keep us posted.

Any good ideas for spring rates on a 2 link harris?? With the car the way it is now we are having to go into the corner very hard which puts the car way out on corner exit. ie. no foward bit on exit with mid corner push!! We are running, LF 575 with 3050 shock, RF 650 with a 76 afco. On the rear, LR 200 with 93 pro and RR 175 with a 93 pro. Any thoughts would be very helpfull.

Thanks
