Maybe you can find a dyno somewhere..... Usually it's measured in grams pr mm, that is, how many grams do it take to compress them a millimeter. HPI measure it, when the spring is compressed to half the unloaded length.

However, which brand are they? Maybe somebody do know them.... much easier....
