spring rates

I been looking for a few days trying to find the fact 2.4 std cab rear leaf spring rate. I know the fronts are 350ish according to rock auto and the v6s are 460ish. So I'm going to run 500s since inline 6 is kinda heavy with 22in ladder bars and 225lb rear coils. But I'm starting to think 225 might be too stiff so if factory leafs are around that rate plus 500s for leverage I know it'll be fine.

She's a lot stiffer I got to get some stiffer shocks too to transfer weight faster because 1100hp is gonna be a ride in this little thing

I would but its in pieces doing a ladder bar with triangulated upper links. It actually sits in the old loaded position because the 2jz weight is so much more over 2rz (same position it was in just a lot stiffer)
