Good luck with your setup. Be prepared to change the springs at the track after you try it. I will be surprised if you are not wicked loose. If you ran those springs with the 1 5/8'' bar before, the bar kept you tighter. When you are set up right you should run the panhard bar about 1/2'' higher at the 3/8 mile track than the 1/2 mile.
If you want to try some thing go back to last years setup with a 175-200 LR and a 500RR and 52% cross. Start with the panhard bar in your same place and hot lap. Raise the bar 1/4'' at a time on both sides till you are happy with the car. Make sure you only change the bar and nothing else. Measure your tires each time and reset the air so you have the same stagger each time. Use the stagger you calculate for the track.
Less cross in your setup will help the left front tire work more.
You may have had to much RR spring causing the left front to compress last year. Good luck
