I am so happy I started this thread. Finally we can get a good discussion going about parts and drift setups. I am thinking of changing my spring rates around on my stance. I may pick up some 13 or 14k springs to put up front and put the 12ks in the rear.

Currently I am running the stock Stance GR+ spring rates which is 12k/10k. I am probably gonna get a pair of the 13k springs and put them up front and then put the 12k in the back.

It all depends: Are you stock body? Kit? What are the roads like where you live? What size wheels and tires are you gonna run? I am pretty low given the fact I daily/drift/grip my IS300 and have 255s all the way around and a Vertex kit. I am also running Stance Coils.
