I have mine set soft and high as I like it as a grand tourer rather than a race track car. 500/400 might be too stiff?

Different damper, so will not translate directly, but the Power Nitron 'comfort' kit has 400/325 springs.

I think that, maybe, dampers are central to the choice of springs: if dampers are quite economical, may dont't have a good travel.
This should require a better travel control.
So a stiffer springs could help to control better compression and expansion.
Maybe a higher level from the ground of the car could help too...
Hope what I wrote it's understandable: isn't easy form me to explain some concept in english...

Distance from the ground is usually measured on the corner of the outriggers and its generally accepted of a 10mm rake with the rear being higher.

Mine are set somewhere around 120 to 130mm. I jack the back up a little and stiffen it to compensate when the boot is full of Spa camping kit biggrin
