KW V1's with the different springs?

Hello! I've been using kw variant 1 suspension and front springs are a bit soft for my preference so I'm wondering is anybody swapped the front springs with something like h&r race or similiar, are they (v1) same diameter, length etc as stock springs?
Will very appreciate any input on this..

I noticed that HP Autowerks sells a KW conversion kit from progressive springs to Swift linear springs:


You can also buy front-only or rear-only conversion kit.

You can send a PM to HP Autowerks to ask if this applies to KW V1 too (I don't see why not).

I think the diameters are different on the KW spring perch. You can make them fit by machining them down 1mm in diameter to accommodate other aftermarket springs.

I find my KW Series 1's are very firm in front. I am dropped all the way though.
