Not sure on the spring rate.
It depends on some data on the suspension, around 200 lbs probably?

Try this link:
Spring Rate

I made many launches on my car to see where the bars needed to be for a good 'hook'.
(I have ladder bars though, 4 links lot more adjustments)
Some made a huge improvement in hooking. Then start on the springs, then the shocks.

:)
Thanks John! That is a big help! What type of shocks do you use? Varishock?

I bought them a long time ago, seems like they were Strange possibly?

Summit had a sale on theirs when I bought them, made by Strange and saved $100 on the pair. I am running 95 lb springs.

The most important thing is to scale the car when you change.
