Not sure if this will help, but my suspension seems to be stiffer than any other Bonneville I've driven with FE2. jr's3800, Dame, and I have long suspected I have one of the 'higher' grades of FE2 (there were 5 grades within that class of suspension). My dimensions are as follows:

Front Sway Bar 32mm

Rear Sway Bar 21mm

Front springs 16.0mm

Rear Springs 15.0mm

yup Will your spring size is really close to the F41. The F41 has a 16.3 mm coil

That'* gonna be tough. Our rear springs are progressive coils. The pitch varies.
