weight transfer with front coil springs

hey guys, i just had a quick question, a higher spring rate would give me better weight transfer right? i was looking into coil springs for my s10 blazer v8 conversion, and was looking for something i can swap in that would give me better 60 ft times. here is a list of what will work with my suspention, tell me what you think would be best. i figured the moog 5654 for the s10 4x4 ext cab would be the best because they had a spring rate of 760 lbs. am i backwards here? would a lower spring rate be better for weight transfer? i would also like to add, the reason i am going this route with the coil springs, is because stock replacements are just so much cheaper than getting some trick springs. if anyone can give me some quick coil spring tech for drag racing/weight transfer, please feel free!!

Remember, when it comes to 60ft times, you only want the chassis to rotate just enough to eliminate wheel spin. Anything more is wasted motion, hense time. If this is more of a street truck that strip, stay with the springs that work on the street, then change the shocks when you go to the strip.
