R3 stock spring rates?

Anyone know what the stock spring rates are for the R3? I'd have thought someone would have measured and posted them by now, but I haven't found anything -- just other people asking.

Just going by what I know of other Mazda "sport" suspensions, I would not expect R3 springs to be more than 7% stiffer than the "normal" suspension. They may also change the bias slightly to allow a tiny bit more rear slip angle. Or, more likely, they will change the bias a little to allow for a slightly bigger sway bar setup to arrive at the same balance for a superficially "sporty" feel and for marketing purposes.
