Default stock rear spring rates?

how many lbs is the stock rear springs rated at for 1998-2002 f-body LS1 cars?

i have the optional bilstein ultra performance suspension sytem on my SS that comes from SLP. the rear eibach spring rates start at 115 lbs and progressively get stiffer to 185 lbs. anyway, while good for road racing i don't think this is the optimum spring rates for drag racing.

Around 292 front, 115 or so rear. I agree, stock springs would be better for drag racing. Though I wouldn't say what you have is all that good for road racing.
