Spring tension differs either by wire thickness or no of coils usually.
Hope this helps.

I had the same problem with the Hpi pro 4 springs. I just squeeze two together and the one that compress first is the softer. It takes a while but works surprisingly well.

I counted the coils, that seems the best way.

I had that problem too. Before it got worst, I painted 1/4 the spring its color so I would'nt lose track of the spring rate
