This is a post I made a few years ago. The setup that I posted was in VTA form and will also work for asphalt, but if I remember right, I softened to a AE blue spring front/rear.

build to these specs and itll be great. I am using kit greens and find them to work very well with protoform tires on asphalt. Both shock towers to outer holes 2° toe front and back . 1 1/2° camber front . 2 1/2 rear
i went thru every shock combo and ended up with kit greens 14lb i think . 60 front oil and 40 rear.
.5 mm wider hex shim in rear .
