You can try a 120/140Y one, they are slightly wider where it matters...

Front suspension you can get coil overs made or just get other springs made that is a bit lower and harder.

The back lift in corners because the front dips into the ground.

Stiffer or lower coil springs won't do the job of a sway bar. The sway bar is there to prevent body roll and keeps the car level by forcing the inside wheel to also dip when the outside wheel comes under pressure. No amount of spring changing will do the same job.

im gonna take my old springs in and have new ones made, but with about a 300pound tension because of the heavier motor, and in the rear the leafs re-tensioned and de-bowed..to have my tipper sitting low and stiff, saw a caltrack tracktionbar that someone made on one of the threads .. gonna try it maybe. my swaybar needs to drop lower because of the oil pump thats in the way, but those rods running to the front keeping the wheels from moving forward and backward touch if i drop the swaybar lower, ill look for a 140y swaybar and see if i can make it fit better. the holes on the crossmember for the wishbones are also moved out 8mm each side to get the camber sitting lekke for corners.. we dont have many straights here everything is up n down and left n right....
