Default Need spring suggestion 500(F) + XXX(R)

I'm looking for a neutral setup for street/track duty. I have a 91 with a front RB tubular sway bar with stock rear sway bar.

I have 500(F) springs.

If I run 325(R), my FRC ends up being 58.7%.
300(R) gives me 60.4%.

Which one is preferred for a daily and track car?

Thanks.

Before I clicked on the thread I was thinking 300-350 which is pretty much what you came up with. I have 450/300 with FM front bar and stock rear, Koni yellows. I like the setup very well for track. Can throttle steer it pretty well and it's still very predictable. When I had the FM bar on the rear it was touch too oversteery for me, so I'd hesitate to go much stiffer on the rear springs unless I was also going considerably stiffer on the front. I'd start with 300# and see how you like it.

Loose is fast, go with the 58.7. I think the Cali guys all run in the 56 range.
