    Funny I messaged with Dave Clarkson today ! Decided to go with 9" springs like he has. Cheap and easy. Still confused why the ones on there are so long.

    Been looking through old threads this evening and it is really odd that people mention 10" and 9" springs on the same 13" shocks on the SRV8. So perhaps both lengths are ok if the spring rate is high...

    Been doing some measuring today and using some of the calculators like Ridetech.

    Yes you are correct about the rear end on the SR and yes Clarkson put shorter rear shocks on the bring it down. My focus is on the front currently as it is clearly under sprung. They are the correct...

    Wow 250lbs sounds way different to mine. Im pretty sure the standard SRV8 springs were something like 350lbs on the front with a small block and 225lbs on the rear which are doubled up, so 550lbs on...

    shock spring rates

    I am finding the 450lbs shock springs at the front of my SRV8 are a little weak for my rather heavy big block but not sure how much to go up.
