OEM AMX/Javelin coil springs removed off parts cars and put into storage 33 years ago. Have 68/9 style and also 70 style - $20.00/each + shipping

Can someone tell me the thickness of the coils for the heavy duty Go Pak 68/9 and also the heavy duty Go Pak 70 springs ?

68-9 go pack is .510 diameter from my measurement but the book says 
 .505 .  They have a red paint stripe on 3-4 coils that's probably covered with undercoating.  IIRC AC cars had an additional cyan stripe but I've seen the cyan striped springs in original non AC cars as the rate was almost the same.  There is data on this in the TSM and they say there are different L and R springs but I've not seen any markings to differentiate

The 1969 TSM states for AMX WAC spring Left and right .513"

I just measured mine which are not mounted but I did apply three fresh coats of paint, and they measure .518 coil dia.
They are the original springs. My 68 AMX has factory a/c, ps, pdb, 390 GO PACK. Guess I applied the paint fairly thick.
The most powerful tool is the question.

Just bought my 1st digital caliper, (actually my 1st caliper of any kind). I have (3) sets of OEM 70 coil springs and measured the thickness of the coils. If I did this correctly, I get .6665 or 21/32", which is > 5/8", but < 3/4".

Question is if these are the HD springs? (They are 6 coils)
