Stock springs

Is there a difference between front/back, side for the stock springs off a LR D90 SW (95)? I have an old set and was wondering how to tell if there is?

they are all different, you can tell what is what by the colors painted on them. if the colors are gone you can compare the height to the "factory" heights but I doubt that will be worth the effort. If I recall, Red90 on here has a pretty good breakdown of stock and aftermarket spring specifications on his webpage.

Or you could just put the big ones on the back and the wee ones on the front and see what happens.

The thicker ones go in the back. DS is a little taller than PS. If you post a picture of all four lined up I can tell you which is which.

Along these lines, any idea what the stock spring size would be on a ROW 110 circa 1999? Mine are sagging in the front and I wanted to replace all the way around (especially since Goose is heading to L8 next week). I'd go larger but the unfortunate reality is that I've got about 1" between my roof and the top of the garage and for the time being that has to be the driving factor. The other part is I'm not near the truck right now and won't be for another couple I may just have to wait and order them when I get back.
