166 springs marking

Hi all!

Is there anybody who knows something about 166 springs marking?

My V6 springs yellow-red marked front and rear.
My friend V6 springs green-lilac front, yellow-red at rear.
Another V6 springs yellow-brown at front...unknow at rear.

JTD and TS has different srpings than the other above.

What is the rule?
Which is the hardest, softest, the highest, lowest?

Mine are yellow lilac front and rear. Call the folk at Bletchley Park they'll break the code no bother.
