What kind of springs do I have?

Need a little help. My front springs have a yellow & blue paint stripe...Anybody know what they are? Would there be a serial # anywhere on them. I currently have 285/75 16 tires....I'm assuming the vehicle has been lifted a couple inches....thanks

Pictures? It may not be lifted at all. I believe the stock springs have similar markings. 285/75 tires fit fine at stock height.

I'm thinking about the ARB HD springs

Thanks guys for helping me burn a hole in my pocket!!! I definitely want to upgrade from my stock springs. Daily driver with Bilstein shocks...but I want this thing to go in the dirt...I'm thinking about the ARB HD springs. I've read a lot of forum threads on springs but a little up in the air as far as what would be the best purchase for off road use. thanks again for the charts...j

When these charts list colors, where/how are two colors put on the springs? My '84 110 has a white stripe painted on each spring, not 2 colors. Just curious what mine are.

thanks,
charles

Cgalpin look at the chart airbornrover posted under OEM springs. You probably have two white stripes about an inch wide on each coil of the spring on the left front side(passenger)? Some of my paint had been worn off from dirt & debris. hope this helps...j
