What's a better spring setup for street and track use? 6kfront 8krear or the other way around?

I can't speak to the spring rate that's ideal, but the rear springs should be stiffer than the fronts because of the geometry of the suspension.

I'd guess that 6k/8k would be on the uncomfortable side, though it could work well on the track.

How much street vs track driving are you planning?

Sorry I've been away from the boards for a while. I wasn't fond of doing this either but it's the only way to really make use of the adjustability. At this point all I've done is used the hole saw which just barely fits over the piece you're cutting away so it stays centered fairly well that way. Then I used a touchup paint pen with primer in it and painted the edges then I put in my 3d printed trim rings. You can PM me for more info.
