OEM spring colour codes

Hi All,

I am trying to find the colour codes for OEM 6.5 front and rear springs. I have done a fair bit of searching with no luck so far. I do remember reading it somewhere years ago and seem to think it may be blue and green??

Cheers!

So I have found a bit more info on this. Looks like there may be 2 options for a TME?

Chassis SNGF2 (special colouring) only lists the following options for springs.

Front Spring - MR510096 (white/green)
Rear Spring - MR510100 (white/blue)

I have seen other claims that TME with an SNGF chassis may also have the springs below, however Mitsubishi parts is registering these are for the RS SNDF chassis.

Front Spring - MR510097 (white/white)
Rear Spring - MR510099 (white/red)

Both options look like the use the same dampers:

Damper FL - MR510141
Damper FR - MR510142
Damper Rear - MR510140

Anyone got a TME they can eyeball to confirm??

Probably your best bet is to give RossSport a call and ask to speak to Gav ([email protected] on here).

Hi.
I must breathe life into this old thread. Do you EVO-experts know what is the difference between these two springs that fit the EVO 6 TME?

Thank you, Dave.
Still, it confuses me. The two versions of springs have not similar coils. Ross Sport is selling MR510099 to the TME but every spring I have seen from factory cars is the MR510100 - white/blue painting.
Do the two springs have the same ride height even though they have different designs?
One is for RS and the other is for GSR.
