Just read on forged DV website that blue > yellow > green. Can someone confirm?

On the website, they also have a set of red springs which they claim to be the strongest of all. Ok to run red?

I had a surging like that while cruising at a constant speed and it ended up being a small vacuum leak in both of the hoses behind the oil filter. I messed with the DV springs forever before figuring that out. If you've never changed them it's worth a look on an '07.

Correct, but you should be fine with yellow; I really don't think you'd want to run red if they're stiffer than blue.

Thanks George! Will take a look this week. Hopefully the rain dies down here in NYC in the next day or 2.

Do you know which hoses they are or part number?

You can see which ones in the thread below; I just stopped by the local auto parts store and got a couple feet of bulk vacuum hose from them.

No problem; it's super easy/quick to do, so hopefully that's the issue.
