Page 7 of http://home.earthlink.net/~whshope describes the use of biased front spring rates to equalize rear tire loading during launch.

S10's use the same suspension and steering (except for the center link which is shorter on the S10) as G-bodies. Look for springs listed for a 78-87 Monte Carlo.
