the blue spring is one step stiffer then the stock light blue spring. you can drive the car with light blue spring very smooth but you can drive the car much harder with blue spring if you have the traction.

I plan to test this as the short front spring is a bit too short but i expect that the same color rear spring will be softer if you put it in front.
