Just wondering if anyone can tell me the stock spring length on the 4dr sidekicks, front and rear. I've been looking online, but can only find the spring rates. Thanks!

do we need to teach you how to search the internet then? :)
most springs companies have detailed catalogs with spring data, here is just one for free, easy to find quite a few others.
It still doesn't give me the spring length. I've checked a few other catalogues and they don't even include suzuki or the sidekick/vitara or spring lengths either.. I was thinking maybe someone has measured a stock spring before.

gee man, you either really struggle with simple tasks or you are too impatient to even scroll down a pdf.... go to page 139, wire diameter, spring diameter and length given....

with this kind of info crossing i managed to build a 2" lift with SOFT rates, just using springs from other cars, runs really smooth while having tons of articulation.

One word of caution - the ROC chart provided and every other after-market spring manufacturer's chart I've ever seen provides data on the after-market springs made by that manufacturer and not the OEM springs - yes, ROC provides what they consider a standard replacement spring, but you have no guarantee that their standard replacement is an exact match for the OEM part.

Case in point - ROC calls out the same part (CS3556) for the front of both the SQ420W & SQ625W Grand Vitaras - these two vehicles do not use the same OEM front spring,
