Question Stock shock spring

I am planning to buy some springs for my shocks. I am crawling, trail running most of the time. The stock springs are too stout. Not wanting to change shocks yet as I have modded these so they don't leak. So far, so good.
What would be a good soft spring to start at? Should I change the length? I am also going to add a rear sway bar to help with some torqe twist. Thinking of adding a little stiffer spring to help with the torque too. Any ideas?
Thanks for the help guys!

Here's a list of the Axial part number, color, & spring rate.
Hope this helps you out. I do beleive the stock springs are
the reds ones at 2.07. hight the number the stiffer the spring
the lower the number the softer the spring.

AX30222 Blue 3.55
AX30221 Yellow 3.27
AX30220 Green 2.85
AX30219 White 2.47
AX30218 Red 2.07
AX30225 Orange 1.75
AX30224 Purple 1.43
AX30223 Black 1.07

I beleive that's all of them.

What mod did you make to stock shocks so they don't leak any more?

I took them apart and used thin teflon tape on the top cap. Used some green slim on the bottom. Tightened very tight. So far so good!

I'm thinking of picking up some of the Axial purple for the front & black for the rear.
I figure it can't hurt to have some of each color to fine tune the stock shocks.

I can't remember the part number, but they are soft but still enough stiffness that it's stable

The purples come on the kit wraith and I have never seen a need to change them.

With the battery mounted up front this is what i ran and it felt great. Have golds all the way around on it now and doesnt feel as good.
