I was wondering what everyone's opinion is on the Landrum "drag race springs"? I'm looking at the multi-leaf springs which have a lowered arch and have rates ranging from 225-300 lbs. I like the cost, and can drive up to Summit Racing in Akron to buy them. Does anyone have any experience or educated opinions on how these will work?
Application is 1968 Camaro, iron headed big block, Tremec or Richmond 5 speed, 9" rear end. I've got coils for the front that are around 700lbs, Hotchkis front sway bar, GW Del-a-Lum bushings, weld in subframe connectors....
I'm looking at the 275 or 300 lb springs based on ratios I've seen on other cars of about 40% of the front rate for the rear. Thanks for any input!
