Default 97 body mount question

I have a 97 SSE, n/a. The body mounts are shot and the dealership says that there are three different replacements. They all will fit but they have different stiffness. The originals are supposed to have a colored dot on them for identification but mine are so worn I can't see anything. I believe the options were Red, yellow, and orange, maybe? Does anyone know which would be the stiffest and which would be the softest.

thanks for any input

This is the only information I have.

upper posn #1 blue
upper posn #2 red
upper posn #2 & 3 orange

lower posn #1 red
lower posn # 2 yellow
lower posn # 3 blue

Ok.. then the front is a blue on top for each side and a red on bottom for each.
Position 2 is the forward of the two rear mounting points. A red for the top of each and yellow on bottom.
Position 4 is Orange on top and blue on bottom.
