Need your suggestions on replacement rear springs

I currently run a Strange 150 lb/in coil-overs on the FRONT and AFCO (AFC-25225SS) - 11" x 5.5" 225 lb/in traditional coil springs on the REAR. I feel like the car could weight transfer better with a lighter spring in the back. What do you suggest?

Note that the "street car" part of me is still active even though this is a track car only. I wish I could put the rear down maybe an inch. I used to run an Eibach Pro-Kit on the car before the heads, trans swap, etc.. with the old 5-speed setup and extreme lack of power, it went 1.64 in the 60 ft (12.75 @ 106). I was thinking about picking up some rears from a Pro Kit but was afraid it would sit too low and the weight transfer would be crap.

Help Looking for 10s one way or another. New slicks are on for tonight so if the rain holds off, maybe it will beat its best of 1.52 in the heat.

Watched a video taken from a T&T pass on Wed night and the right rear comes down hard on a 26" tire.

Maybe the springs are giving more than I thought?
