Default Samurai Spring Rate?

Hey guys, I have a 98 coily samurai lifted it about a year ago with heavy duty springs which were the same length as original but stiffer to give the extra ride height.
Problem is my ride is far to stiff, I'm getting a sore back, head being smashed into pillar when I go over even small bumps at moderate speed.
After talking to a few people who know more than me, they said I should get springs of the original spring rate but longer.
So I'm looking at redoing my suspension, getting custom made springs as no one seems to sell any other options for me.
I am trying to calculate what hieght and what spring rate I may need.
So if anyone has any details on what the stock springs rate of a samurai is (coily or leafy). It would be of great help.

Cheers, Kent!

Hi fiddy,

Have you tried using stock front coils from the Vitara/Sidekick/Tracker? I had my Sammy converted to coils using the (front) Vitara coils and they ride very well. Roughly a 4-5 inch lift from stock. There was a bit of re-engineering needed but it was well worth it.

Here's a sample of how it looks:
