spring rates with wings

my mygale ecoboost only runs very small wings at the moment and i want to upgrade to proper big ones .
question is how much do i need to uprated the spring rates to.
running 550 front and rear at the moment and car feels fine apart from grounding on very heavy at the front so traveling 40mm downwards

motion ratio for front is 1.38 and rear is 1,87 so with 550 psi springs i make it im running about 400psi on front and 300 psi on rear car weighs approx 435kg

regards pete

Perhaps try the 'Engine and chassis' forum just up the page?

And I think the answer is very much 'it depends'. The cars with big wings I'm familiar with have mono-shock fronts which run significant pre-load and three spring arrangements at the rear. The car starts off with some static nose down rake and ends up at speed with the rear hitting the ground. Which probably isn't where you are starting from.
