: I am no expert and have not experimented much but my Climax Turner Mk 1 feels pretty well balanced using the original front springs (271 lbf/in). These have been lowered a little. The anti-roll bar (sway bar) is 11/16in. I have 2 deg of neg camber. The rear suspension is set 1/2 inch higher than the front.
: I agree with you that less spring rate and more sway bar thickness may be better for you. Too much front stiffness gives a tendency to lift a wheel and understear.
: I would be interested in anyone else's experience.

thanks Andrew - I think we are in agreement on softer spring rate and bigger diameter anti-roll bar - my car lifts an inside front wheel in corners indicating too much front stiffness
: : my Turner race car has Spridget front suspension, can anyone help with spring rates and front antiroll bar diameter? I am currently running 500lb front springs with 5/8" antiroll bar - the car rolls excessively at the front and yet lifts an inside front wheel and understeers - I suspect I need to soften the springs and go up a size or two on the antiroll bar - any suggestions gratefully received
