you can't know the perfect springs until you drive it. if it's bouncing off the ground when landing jumps, or gets tossed all over creation on whoops it'll need a softer spring. if it's not rebounding quickly enough when landing jump's or bottoming out really hard on small jumps, or slapping the chassis on uneven surfaces it'll need a stiffer spring. the perfect spring will depend on how you drive it and on what surfaces. give those stock springs a shot and see what happens.

to further complicate things you could also have the correct spring and need to adjust the shock piston or oil weight.
