ExMOD Front Springs?

My truck has a rake that I don't care for and would like to give the front a lift.
What front springs are standard on an ExMOD 90 FFR?
I have a set of spare springs that are marked as follows:
Blue/Red
Yellow/White
Yellow/Blue
Blue/Green

From what I have read the first two are 225lbs rear springs and the last two listed are HD 175lbs front springs. I have swapped in a 200Tdi (not sure if that weighs more than the 2.5NA) and added a snatch bar. I'm not planning on any other mods to the vehicle.
Any idea if the yellow/blue and the blue/green springs will level out my vehicle?
Anybody ever use rear springs in the front to level things out?

I haven't been in the front yet, but in the back, when I swapped the rear axle, according to the colors, I noticed I had HD springs. I assume it was to account for the batteries and radio gear.

Can you see the color of the front springs? If they are stock 90 springs, I'd think the matching HD springs would level you out a bit:

It looks like the blue/red and the yellow/white are also the HD springs for the front of a 110. That should give you some lift I'd think.

"Standard" military 90 & 110's (non wolf) had normal civilian spec front springs. same as you'd get on any euro 90/110 diesel. nothing special.

most had HD rear springs though.

Thanks Jamie. Thats what I kind of suspected. The rustiest parts on my truck are the front springs so there is no way to identify what they actually are. I'll put the HD front springs in and hopefully they will level out the truck.

Careful though.... On my old 110 (Td5) I fitted HD front springs (AKA 90 standard rears; NRC9444/9) and the handling became aweful! front end was waaay to stiff (I had no winch/nudgebar etc, just standard)

even on my current 110 (Td5 with full cage and Husky8000 on the front) I use standard front springs (NRC 8044/5)

Standard 90 front's are NRC9446/7.... blue & blue/yellow paint stripes.

Later puma 90 springs have changed number to REB500200 & REB500220, but the paint codes are still the same.
