    Which brands should I look at. I know saw and king are good, should I look anywhere else? Also which would be better and why dual rate or triple rate? I will be using them under a 350 and a full size (aka not gutted) front end so you have an idea of the weight they will be supporting. I'll probably do the front first and leave the rear springs for now unless there is a really good reason to do the rear instead.

    Thnx

    I'd do the front first. Fox makes good stuff too. Triple rate is the same as dual rate except it provides a tender coil that keeps pressure on the other springs when the shock is fully extended(so the other 2 coils aren't coming off of their seats).
