coilover spring rate( strange hypercoils)

Anyone here tried any spring weight under 175# with a big block fox ? I have 200# on now & see many of you use 175's , I am looking at some 160 # hypercoil ones from strange. Am I going to coil bind with an aluminum headed 460 in my capri? thanks.........kelly

Do the 175's give off some weight transfer? My 200's don't do much, but they are better than the 250's I started with

yes they do, very well in fact. 200s will stay stiff as a board, anything lighter will sag and bounce.
