anyone recommend spring rates for an improvement over std (std and hks springs actually),whilst not needing the dentist weekly.
car is used in all weathers/conditions
i.e. fast road sunday mornings and morrisons friday afternoons with 4 brats in
also,which dampers would seem best value for money

I have Leda Oil suspension on my EVO 6, came standard with 2.5 350lbs 9 long springs front and 2.25 225lbs 10.5 Rear springs.
I found this set up far to soft especially the rear but still it was a huge improvment from standard.

I am now running 450lb front and 400lb rear with the dampers re-valved to race spec damping, this is very firm on the road but great on the track!
After experimenting with various spring rates I think a good compromise would be 375lbs front and 325lbs rear.

How you want the ride to be like is very personal so this is only a guide, good thing is that the springs are only £20ea and quick and easy to change.

hi clive
im waiting till better weather before fitting,and doing my homework in the meantime,
plus my corner weight scales were last used on a model t so i need to buy/borrow a newer version
what ride height are you running ?

have you fitted the leda stuff yet or are you waiting for the sub zero weather to stop? Doing brake/suspension work at these temperatures is a nightmare.
