Mk2 Rally Suspension

Hey guys.
Im in the middle of converting a Mk2 Hillclimb car into a Rally car.

Im a little stuck when it comes to suspension.
What suspension setups are you guys running on your rally cars?
I do have the 2 Ltr and it is a coupe..
what's the best bang for buck and maybe possibly somebody has some heavy duty springs or shockies avail?
Thanks guys.

    I have some Bilsteins for sale for the rear if you are interested.
    I use them on my Mk1 Escort rally car and find them excellent.

    The only reason for selling is because the new car I am building is going to use coilovers on the rear and I don't need two brand new spare std's for my current car.

    If your running a "normal" sort of pinto, up to say 170hp the Bilsteins are the way to go. I have them front and rear in my car also, although I run 35nm/mm front springs, which I think is about 300lbs/inch?
