Front Strut Spring Weight?

Thinking about new springs on strange front struts. Car weight 2750 lbs with 1400 on front end. Double adjustable JRI shock's in back if that helps? Springs now are 'as shipped with strut' 350's? What spring weight would be best for overall car weight? Thanks.

My recommendation based off of some other cars I have done would be either a 250 or 275lb spring for that front weight. You are kind of in the middle with the possibility of leaning more towards the 250.

Thanks,

I run a 250 with 1200-1300 front weight. 250-275 is where you should be.

I am 1400 on the front of my Vega. I have 225 lb springs on my Strange Struts.

I race a 3rd generation Camaro that came with 225# springs on Lakewood struts. When the struts went bad I installed KYB singe adjustable and used 200# Hyperco springs. I’m planning to switch to Strange front struts and am going to use 185#. A racing friend has the same front as I do with 175# Hyperco UHT in a 3rd Gen Firebird. My car is 2835# with driver and 1510# on front for 53% / 47%
