I found it - thanks to whoever put this up before as I'm not sure of its source:

Model----------------Rate-F-R(lbs/in)----Rate-F-R(N/mm)
USDM Stock----------118/157-------------20.66/27.49
JDM FSTi Black-------182/177-------------32.00/31.00
JDM FSTi Pink--------205/194-------------36.00/34.00
USDM FSTi Pink------224/194-------------39.22/33.97
JDM FSTi SPT(soft)--340/290-------------59.52/50.70
(these are the softer of the two springs available with the 4-way adjustable struts)
Pink springs: USDM vs JDM
Stiffer in the front but equal in the rear.
JDM FSTi vs. USDM FXT
Slightly stiffer but I suspect the inverted strut gets the credit for improving ride characteristics.
Just a quick note on the JDM FSTi struts at 0.3m/sec:
Extension: Front 1722 N Rear 1331 N
Compression: Front 616 N Rear 579 N
