Spring lengths for MCS dampers

Hello,
I have a set of mcs dampers with ground control camber plates and rear ride height adjusters. I'm ordering springs and was looking for some advice on length. The rates im trying are 600 front 900 rear and was thinking a 7" spring in front with a 9" in the rear. the 9" length in rear has been documented by a few of the forums members but I cant find any information on the fronts. springs are 2.25id all around.

I use 6" plus helper springs which brick at 3/4". 7" would apply if you don't intend to use helpers.

As for the rear, I couldn't tell you. Every set I have built (20-30) have been coilover rear.

I think you should be good with a 9" 900lb rear spring. Any higher rates and I think you have to go to an 8" spring as I am not aware of a 9" 1000lb-ish spring.
