Default Ground controls, what spring rates? autox street

The car is a street driven autox car, unsure of what spring rates work best, car has oem bilsteins with 98,000 miles on them however they are in amazing shape! I think the 10th anniversary have a larger front bar in it. But I am looking to just do the ground controls if possible and have good handling characteristics


Thanks!!!!

450/300 is a good setup if you are running in a street tire class

a little much for the OE shocks. Maybe something in the 300/225 range would be better?

Stewart Development will revalve your Bilsteins.

Fat Cat Motorsports will sell you new revalved Bilsteins.

I run 700/400 on my AST's, these rates would be great on 20-year old stock dampers.
