any advantages to keeping sbc springs in the front with a bbc in the car? Pros and cons to those that have tried it each way?

Thanks

Your ride height will be lower for that low rider stance that is currently popular (pro). Your suspension travel will be limited by that low rider stance that is currently popular (con). You save money on springs (pro). It will cost you money in shock and tire wear (con). Ride will be harsher as spring rate of stock springs are progressive and the soft part is gone (pro or con depending upon how you like your car to ride). You will win every burn out contest because all of the weight is over the nose of the car (pro). You will not obtain as much weight transfer if you should ever decide to participate in a contest of acceleration (con).
