Default Whats the best shock springs to use?

Whats the best shock springs to use in a touring car?
Brand that has consistent/match spring rates...
HPI, AE, Xray, Losi or Tamiya?

With the latest TCs offering softer spring rates, what spring rate
should I use now? Im running AE Blues (front) and Silvers (back).
Is there an updated chart comparing spring rates of every brand?
