Default DNX408 rear spings

Guys,

I am looking for the stiffest rear springs for the DNX408 rear shocks. I currently use the blue ones they are still too weak for my converted
electric buggy. What is the best option to make the rear stiffer?

I have a pair of yellow rear spring but they are weaker than the supplied blue ones.

The kit supplied Blue ones are actually stiffer than any of the option kit springs that they currently offer.

Are there stiffer springs that fit the DNX408 rear shocks?

Kyosho Big Bore springs will work but are tight around the shock collars.
Losi springs fit good.
