I would not run a 12" 250# spring on a drag car...the 14" 175# will work, but a lighter spring like a 14" 130# spring will help out a lot more with a car around your weight.

2800lbs I would use a 14/130 as mentioned above..

ks
Worked well for my combo ^^^^. I have AJE K and arms, and bouht the coilovers from them. It was a street/strip car at the time and so they suggested 14x170's. When it became a drag only car I read up and switched to 14x130's. Car weighs 2780 and race weight is 3000 on the nose. Details in sig.

These: QA1 High Travel Coil-Over Springs 14HT130 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing The High Travel makes them a bit unique and well suited for a drag racing application.

Made a big difference in my launch. Went from high 1.5 sixtys to low 1.5's and carried the front wheels about 25' about 3" up. Just about perfect I would say.
