Need a little advice here. I am building a Desert Dynamics 5 seat prerunner. 1 3/4 tubing, Boxed Front Arms (upper and lower), Boxed rear arms, LS1, Mende, Full aluminum body with windshield. Running 12" 2.5 coilovers in front (with 14" triple bypass) and 16" 2.5 coilovers in the rear (with 18" triple bypass). running 35" tires on all 4 corners. Guessing the car will weigh 2500-3000lbs.

My questions is what springs to start with? It has been suggested I run 350 over 400 on the front and 500 or 550 over 600 on the rear. Does that sound right?

Thanks

Sure, without knowing much more, that sounds good. You might also try this web site. http://f-o-a.com/calculator.html
