spring rates

I need to order some new springs and was wondering what you guys would recommend as far as spring rates front and rear for a well balanced car? This will be on a dual purpose car (aggressive street/mild race setup) I am going with IE coilovers and shortening the tii strut housing. Not really concerned about ride quality TOO much but must be tolerable as the GF might spend some time in it as well. This car is not my daily driver.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Yeah I did a few weeks ago and understandably that's the answer I got back from them...

"For a dual purpose car you will have to decide how far toward "race" you want to go. It is totally subjective. How fast you go on the track depends on what you'll put up with on the street."

Tito..I see no real concrete answers here..its a tuff one...but id say 250 on up for frts.....rear would be matched to that.....

I would think under 300 or so in frt is a conservative track set up....
