need help changing suspension

ok i have a upr k member kit with coil overs, right now i have 14-175 but i want something that i can take turns and coners. what spring rate should i get for the front? also what struts should i get right now i have 70-30?

rear i need both springs and shocks, not sure if anyone just sells rear but what should i get? also what shocks?
i have d&d control so they should still be good?

im getting 18-9 and 18-10 rims so they should be good for handling?

i don't think the upr k-member is built to handle cornering duty. you can have a car that pulls double duty but you should buy some double or single adjustable shocks so you can switch from what you are needing at the time. coil over wise between 300/350 front springs and probally a 225 rear would be a good street setup with the stock rear but if you are running a torque arm i would go 250 in the rear for street duty. you can always call maximum motorsports or griggs for some other advice with what you are looking for, but i would sit down and think what you really want and do with your car so you can build and spend your money once and not repeatedly
