14K springs front and rear? I forgot about VMC parts fitting on our cars. Definitely will look into this
No just the rear are 14k I’m keeping the fronts at 10k trying to get the car to rotate faster which I’m scared this will change the whole dynamic of the car with my driving style But I need to make a base line with the suspension tuning. Once I get it back on track I can figure out some more tuning options.

Not terribly off from what I run in my Celica (little lighter so little softer), definitely has a propensity to neutralize understeer with the right sway bars and alignment but watch out for the rear wanting to come around if you're hard on brakes at the wrong part of a corner or lift off too much. Like I said, alignment is critical and you'll probably have to play with it some to see what suits you best.

It may upset the car a lil bit but I think you will like that set up. What's your camber and toe set at?

Yeah I’m looking for it to rotate faster it’ll be something I’ll have to get use to. The way I drive is hard on the brakes early trying to get on throttle quicker rather than late braking. But I think I might have to adjust that a slight bit depending on how it acts going into the corner and settling in the corner to come out.

It's a hard act to balance making it fast as possible and making it possible to recover once shit goes sideways.
