Not sure of lbs spring rate but they measure 8 inches tall, 2-3/4 inches diameter and have 11 coils in total. I think they are a standard type spring length/diameter available from most spring suppliers.
When the weather gets a little warmer I'll crawl under the car and measure the rear springs but if memory serves me right they use the same type of damper /spring on the front and rear??

Looking through the deon build manual and cross referencing deon's parts list they have a couple of codes for the springs they specified-
Front USS-450-Spring supplier- Scania springs
Rear USS-300-Spring supplier- Scania springs
May be a deon code but wondered if the number may refer to spring rate. Strange the front is a higher number? But add's up to the discussion in the club mag. Maybe deon got them the wrong way round on the parts list? Possibly should be 450lbs rear 300lbs front??
I've measured the rear springs and they are identical in size to the front ones.
