Default C5 Corvette Drag Coil over Spring Rate?

Looking at going to a coil over set up. I am looking for a good 25% street and 75% drag racing set up. What brands and spring rates do you recommend in a double adjustable coil over?

Call Menscer Motorsports near you. Spring rate will depend on total vehicle weight and front to rear bias. Get double adjustable shocks. I used to run QA1s on the street and track before Menscers were available.

450lbs for the rear seems common
