you sure you want stiff?
if you want stiff then just lower your car real low. like the race h&r race, neuspeed race, or eibach sportline. they lower about 1.5 inch. like up to 50% stiffer than stock.

also if your looking for some spring company that make stiff springs....check out intrax and sprint.

soft springs gives you smoother ride...

Get some custom ground controls or skunk2 coilovers and good shocks. If you really want springs instead of coilovers, you will still need good shocks to compensate for the higher spring rate.

Also, you said that you don't want the car to move if you go over a bump. That is a very SOFT ride. If you go stiff, you will feel every crack, dimple, and pebble in the road, and God help you when it comes time to go over rail-road tracks.

:eek: shiet! those are the worse!
with speed bumps, u can go over them diagonally w/o problems.. it gets tedious over time, but it still works. with railroad tracks, u can't go over them sideways... at least not here, cause if u do, you'll be on the tracks cause of the fencing they got here.

Though I love the handling, I'm getting a little tired of the ride on my GC's. Rates are 300F, 275R. Drop is approximately 1-1.5" (A little more in the rear.)

I am thinking of either returning to stock (I probably won't be racing next season), or going to 200F, 175R. If I re-corner weighed the car, how do you think the handling will be on springs in that rate range? With my swaybar, will I still dial in positive camber in the rear in hard turns, or will camber stay under control?

I assume that the lower spring rates can handle the same approximate level of drop, correct? (Ovbiously, I'll need much longer springs, and I still have approximate scale numbers to help in that area, and I'm sure ground control can help. - The lenghts are a little shocking - 8" longer in the front, 5" longer in the rear given my 60-40 weight distribution.)

Also transitions, I assme that the shocks can keep them under control?
