Default GQ Coil Springs.

ok, I have just taken the GU coil springs out of my NL and have 3 sets out of a GQ to try, the 3 sets have different coloured dots on them. one set has pink dot, one has white and yellow dot and the other set has purple dot. Which one should I use??

As you have them sitting on the bench, instead of trying to work out what each dot means, why not work out the spring rate.

Here is a pretty easy to use calc to get a rough idea--> link (Bottom of page)
