    Something simple on my street car, I'm sure you guys have already done, an aluminum radiator, it felt like less than half the weight of my brass one.

    I just added up all my weight savings, I am 250-260 lbs light and almost all in front with the farthest things back being lighter seats.
    Is there any reason to maybe get lighter front springs? I wonder especially because of jarring bumps and fiberglass fenders/hood.
