You get shocks valved to specific spring rates. I think Shaikh's at Fatcat are valved to +-25 lb springs, so if you get them valved for 400lb fronts, you can go 425 or 375 to see what's optimal for your driving. FWIW, my revalved Fatcats are running 375/300 F/R and they're very controllable, handle great and are still comfortable on the street. You don't need mega spring rates with properly valved shocks.

the only reason i'm buying those is because i came across a deal im not gonna pass up....im still gonna get them revalved but only the fronts (to about 550 lbs) so i can run them on the street....i just wanted to prove BEN wrong since he wanted to give a sarcastic coment such as "oh, good luck with that"....all you gotta do is search around and wait

wow, great job on being an exception and not the rule, and for finding a seller who didn't know the actual value of his items.
