I run the H&R race springs with koni dampers, so whatever those are, 325 front, 375 rear I think.

What do you want to do with the car?

Well keep in mind if it ends up a trailer queen you can strip out almost 500 lbs of weight....that will affect your need for heavier spring rates a bit.

I run the H&R Race Springs with Koni AGX adjustables.

Love the feel in AutoX. ... but I have to say, I think I am going to go CoilOvers next year.

dont race my car at all but I run Tein S tech and KYB AGX and Im really happy with the set up but the springs are a bit soft for the aggressive drop....I will be for sure switching to a stiffer spring or a coil over set up in the future

^^ Adjustable Dampening does help quite a bit in AutoX
