Default What shock springs come in the R2 kit

Are the springs in the R2 kit 1.4's or 1.5's and are they 5.00's or 5.25's or 6.00's.

What are the length?

Depending on that, which springs should I get.?

Should I just get the cuda rates up and down from the kit supplied springs.?

What about the Rayspeed springs and where can I get them/

How about the HPi 27 mm springs

what about sway bars??

Thanks

The stock springs are 1.4x6, I had all of the 1.4 springs, and some of the softer 1.5's.
