The Pfadt coil overs are some incredible hardware.

Do you know your spring rates? More specifically the rear? I have the drag ones, which I'm assuming are different, but my car won't hook and doesn't stop squating.

My weight transfer doesn't stop until it just about bottoms out. Pfadt had us raise the ride height, we did, didn't help. Even on full stuff, 48, it just kills the rear springs. We even went up on the rate 25#. I need to get Blair more video.


Thanks!

It was whatever stock was then we went up maybe 3/4" per pfadts request. I don't have the car here otherwise I could measure it.

I'd up the rear rate a minimum of 50% to start with. The fact is you don't want an IRS car squatting during launch as you'll have a camber/toe change. When you go to more aggressive camber you loose contact patch and toe creates a lose of traction as it is scrubbing.

The key is to keep the rear stationary and transfer weight to the rear by lifting the front end. Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions.

Kind regards,
