Default Losi & AE shocks

I have recently acquired a xxx-4 in desperate need of a re-build. While stripping it down I realised I could probably use springs from my B4 on it, as I have a near full set of them.

The rears seem almost exactly the same length, so I don't see that as being an issue.

The fronts however are too short by a fair whack. I do however have some other springs that are in between the standard AE front and rear lengths. Does anyone know what these could be off?
I'm sure they are AE as the green ones are indentical in colour to the other greens I have.
I haven't checked them against to Losi front length yet, but they seem close.

losi shocks have a bigger shock body than the ae shocks so the ae springs wont fit the bodies of the losi shocks

Honestly, just get the Losi springs. You don't need too many different spring rates and they fit best and allow you to mimic the setups that drivers will share with you.
