alright so I'm looking into a kit from QA1 outta spohn performance.... the kit comes with front shocks and spring and rear shocks but no rear springs so my question is what should I do for rear springs?
Any help would be awesome thanks guys

if you are looking to drag a lot get them. if not may want to consider other options. i have them on my camaro and they are a little ruff on the street but the weight transfer at the track is great. my car came with them when i got it. i mostly race the car few street miles a year.

If you go QA1's go with 300 or 325 lbs spring up front the 275's are for d. r. only. Rear is QA1 shock with stock springs I believe. With QA1's you do give up some road handling cause of the soft front spring rate.

If it's a DD/DR car and you really not that concerned with corner carving I'd look a DA (double adjustable) shocks (QA1, Strange, Afco). That way you'll have a better shock for both situations street/track.
I would also take a look at the Strange DA shocks, a less expensive alternative to the QA1 shocks with the Hypercoil springs (better then the QA1 springs).
If you're looking to lower the rear a little you could do the "Hose Mod"(.5" to .75" lowering) or install a set of Hotchkis rear lowering springs(1" lowering).
Another thing, If you plan on lowering the front more than .75" i would look at a slightly stiffer springs like a 325, or 350 (Eibach ERS only not available in the Hypercosprings)to keep it a little more streetable.
