Default Putting together suspension, input please...

Here is what Im looking into...

I already have R-package Bilstiens.

What i am wanting to get is the Egay coilovers to use the collers and replace the springs. From what I found from searching and good spring rate is in the 450/300 to 700/450 range (7" spring) I just need to lock in what spring rate numbers I want and which brand to go with. Thoughts on this?

Planing on running a FM solid front sway and stock rear sway and planning on picking up NB tophats. Also can i get away without revalveing my shocks...

So far i feel like Im on the right track, just wanted some input from people who know more about suspension cause i know nothing and choosing is a lil frustrating cause of all the choices.

The car will see some track days but for now is mainly going to be a street car...

I'd think the 450/300 would be much more livable on the street if that's primarily what you'll be using the car for. You might get away without re-valving, but R-Bilsteins are not noted for being particularly comfortable from the factory. Bernie can re-valve them to match whatever springs you decide upon, they'll feel and perform much better, and besides, they've got quite a few years and probably miles on them and could use a freshening up.
