After some investigation today - I have found out I have blue springs in my SUs, not red as I originally assumed (the springs have never had paint on them).

I had an opportunity to sit side by side my (unknown) springs, known red springs and known yellow springs:

Wire diameter: Blue ~0.7mm

Wire diameter: Red ~0.9mm

Wire diameter: Yellow ~1.0mm

Hopefully this will help some of you out.

Go for it mate. I thought I'd post it up as I'd never found anything similar on the net (which didn't help me in my situation as the paint from my springs was long gone!).
