    If I used a couple 250s what height do they need to be?

    Bottom has to be tall enough to not catch on the body of your shock. 10" probably ok. Other one, 6".
    Droop isn't the problem.

    In what track condition or track type would you run an 80lb spring? I know there are allot more variables but if you can give me a "for instance" it would help me tremendously. Keep in mind I have an older mastersbilt.

    Also a guy told me to run a 16". Is 14" more common? A 16" of the same spring rate should theoretically make my static ride height taller in the LR right?

    Thanks yet again lol

    You have to move your coilover nut for the taller spring.

    No it would not effect your ride height if set at the same load# or in traditional terms if you rescale and have the same amount of lr wedge or bite. It's the same rate just a tale spring. If you just swap it out without touching anything of course it will make it taller

    we run it mostly on a smooth slick track , i personally like the 16 inch swift spring , some refer to it as a tornado because of its shape , at 80# , it will not coil bind like others , but this set up is affected by the design of your chassis , if you cant get the travel on your right front , it probably will not help much , when we were running the older designed chassis like yours , we had the best luck on two 250,s stacked , if i were you , this is where i would start and begin to learn......
