With a 150 rate 12" may work but will be on the short side. 150 and 175 rate front springs are generally used at 14" on a fox.

Guys got this setup on this weekend for drag use when I push down on the nose of the car it's pretty stiff is it normal fox Lakewood 90/10 the spring is up about half way up on the adjuster so spring is preloaded but plenty of room In between before any coil bind I'm thinking coilovers are different than normal springs where car bounces up n down when you push nose down by hand

Ok the same as it doesn't Bounce when you push it down? I haven't drove it yet but I'm thinking when you throttle it is when it lifts?

that is the game with the Lakewood 90/10s.they will extend easily but only go in/push down at 10% of the rate of extension. So naturally they will be harder to push down. That is why I took mine off for some different struts that move more freely.

Personally I like the 12''x 150 that Dr recommended for the same reasons with a Strange strut. And don't need the chains. But a gas filled Lakewood can handle 12'' inch or 14'' with ease. Lakewood's have a longer stroke.

unfortunately it is the norm for Fox body cars without anti roll bars (ARB). they mount to the rear axle and the frame forcing the frame to lift up equally.here is a link to a post that I put a couple videos into.Post # 7 in the thread. Its the same car before and after installing an ARB.https://forums.corral.net/forums/gene...-your-fox.html

I believe I set my adjuster so that I had a 1/2" less ride height than the rear measured from the ground to the top center of the wheel well. If i remember correctly it was about 25.5" or 26". 12" 150lb springs on strange single adjustables. I love them. Only thing bothering me is I have a weird clunk noise when I push the front end down by hand. It clunks when the travel bottoms when pushing down by hand. Took a strut/spring setup out on one side, took a look, couldn't find anything noticeable, put back together, still noise. Still can't figure it out.
Anyways a little lower in the front than the rear will work good. Strange are way better than the lakewoods but a 90/10 Lakewood works good as well. They like to wheelie! I had better 60' times when I put a DA shock in the rear with the 90/10 up front than I did with the 90/10 and 50/50 combo, even better now with the same DA rear shock and a strange single up front.
