I haven't been able to find one, Zach. The only shop manual I have is from 2002 and it lists codes 3, 7, C, K and N but no spring rates nor any indication of which would be the softest or stiffest. FWIW, my LII oinker came with C springs on the rear.

ok i was asking becasue fzr_confused on RPS found some explorer springs and he was wondering about the spring rate compared to his K springs on his ranger.

the explorer springs are F, im assumine they are basically the same springs jsut different rates.

There's a good chance that they are arced differently because the Ex is spring under and the Ranger is spring over. Also, I wouldn't count on the spring rate code necessarily being the same across vehicle lines.
