Hope this helps a little.

The codes can be found on a paper tag on the spring or on the Service Parts Identification Label on the left front inner fender. The spring codes for my 85 GT from the label are; 6JH, 7JH, 8YM and 9YM (JH = FJH, YM = NYM)
6 code = left front spring code
7 code = right front spring code
8 code = left rear spring code
9 code = right rear spring code

When I had the above mentioned springs tested at a race shop a few years ago I also had them test an '85 front spring. I don't remember which option code it was, but it was the same rate as the '88 front spring I tested.
