Ditto the above. I started with Vitesse 230lb front springs (car weighed 680kg with straight six up front) and couldn't go above 50mph without the front wheels bouncing off the road surface. A switch to Spitfire 180lb springs on Gaz ride/height adjustable shocks set to the second softest 'click' resulted in the front wheels staying in contact with the road and made for a much faster car in the real world.

330lb springs might give you an edge on the race track, but they might just leave you in a hedge on the road...
