Custom rear spring perches
I'm looking for ideas as far as getting some spring options in the rear. I have FK coilovers 400F/350R right now, and I'm considering using SWIFT coilover springs (at least for the front) with revalved Konis, but I may try to fab some rear perches that would allow me to fit standard diameter coilover springs on the rear control arms.
What have you guys done to get 400+ spring rates at the rear? What are the options without a custom bottom spring seat? Any spring seat I can source somewhere without making one? (My FKs are installed with the adjustable perch at the top, and the spring fits in the original control arm location at the bottom). I thought about bolting a machined spring perch through the arm, sandwiched with a plate (big washer) underneat.
What spring rates would you suggest for mostly autocross, and maybe some road racing? I'm thinking about 500F/500R as a starting point. I have 21mm F and 24mm R sway bars, and will run in FSP next year on C71 Z214 in 225/45/15 if budget allows. A Torsen LSD will be installed. The car was close to neutral this year, but could use a little more stiffness at the rear.
Here's a reference pic (not my car) :
