If you scroll down the "Forums" homepage and explore the suspension section, you will find an extensive thread on your question.

I haven't found anything yet. Ive found the color codes on most cars and some convertibles, but not on a auto, sport, 330. I found on ebay some springs that have 3 white stripes and 1 red stripe I want to make sure is from a sport.

Not sure. I have a zhp auto vert. Gonna likely have the springs changed out next week, and I can let you know what mine are if that helps.

I'm going to an H&R cut kit... slightly lower, slightly tighter. But now the install is not going to happen until 2/18.

Installing Bilstein Coil Over kit tomorrow. My 330 is manual but springs should be the same. I'll share color codes after I pull the old set out.

My old springs had two brownish orange stripes. There were two stripes on one coil and two more identical stripes on another coil just below the first one. My '01 may have had standard suspension though. I've heard that all verts after a certain year had sport, but mine was higher in the front than any newer vert with sport springs. That's why I believe mine may have been standard rather than sport.

Ok good to know, the colors are different than a 05. so you have 2 stripes and another 2 stripes on a total of 4 in one?

Two stripes on one coil, then two more just like it on the next coil down.
