Default Inner Diameter of Associated Sedan Springs

What is the common inner diameter of the associated touring car springs? Trying to see if these would work on different brand of vehicle I have.

big thanks. One other thing if you don't mind, can you tell me the thickness of the springs and the related color / weight?

yes, but what I am wondering is how the thickness of the spring corresponds to its rating. I have some springs here that are non- Ae that I am curious to compare as much as possible and I was advised to look at the spring thickness as an option.

If your unknown springs are about the same length as the associated springs, you can do a simple test. Put the unknown spring and the associated spring on top of each other, and squeeze them together, the one which compresses fully first is the softer. Could give you a rough idea how hard or soft they are compared to some known springs.
