Why the lopsided spring rates? Every other E30 springs are higher rear than front.

That was stock spring rates for drift coilovers...probably because of the engine weight in front...
Weak? Hm...i dont know for US m50 gearbox's but i didnt had any problem with it for last 3 years....
I took m50 gear box because of the better gear ratio...
Schrick is 284/272,stock springs...

stock D2 rates doesn't mean it's right. If you look at every other spring kit for the E30, the rates are higher int he rear than in the front. It's like that for a reason.

US M50 gear boxes are Getrag 250s. They snap just over 300whp IIRC. You sure you don't mean the ZF 320D? The M3 trans? I had one of those but hated the gears because they were too short. Now I'm back to the getrag 260.

What are the ratios for the Euro M50 boxes vs the US? Better final drive?

Nice driving, and an interesting paint scheme!

5HP18 I dont know if there are diferences between euro and US gearbox's.
I got ZF laying in the garage but its a 5HP18,but got getrag 250 mounted on the car for 3 years...we also have few m50's turbo running stock gearbox...not a single problem.
I used getrag 250 and 3.73 at the rear,but now its a bit too "slow" for me,so i`m going to 3.45 diff for next season

Tnx ;) i`m painter but a lazy one lol,the sheme was never finished lol,but i`m going with another sheme for nest year ;) i`ll get the pics when done

Well i dont have any problems with the spring ratios,since it has adjustable dampening and i had it nicely set for my driving style....When stiffer @ rear you easily loose grip at the rear,i dont like that...i rather like it sideways when i want that to happen :)
