I have an 86 LX vert (I'm the original owner) which was converted from 92-94 to a 351EFE, 5 lug conversion, front Baer and rear Ford disks, K-member from an 88 which was slotted and moved up about an inch, front lower control arms from a Turbo Bird, front Griggs coilovers, rear Griggs lower arms with the screw adjustable spring perches, Griggs P-hard rod and Torque Arm, Kenny Brown lower subframe connectors, "Extreme Matrix" braces and jacking sill braces and a 7-point (started as a 4-point JBA) roll bar. I'm a 2-3 times a year track rat wannabe at open track events and am starting to get a little faster and drive the car more aggressively, so I need to firm up the car a bit. Griggs weld in upper subframe (through the floor) connectors, GR40 tubular K-Member with front lower control arms and rear coilover conversion are in the pipeline. I think that we installed Ford "Sport" springs in the rear way back then. Does anyone on the board know what the rate of those springs is? Thanks
