If I understand correctly that translates into 4kg for the front and 10kg for the rear. That appears way softer than most unless the values for the main springs and helpers should add up, in which case I am exactly at 6 and 12 kilos. I will wait and see how this works out for me.
Helpers don't add to the total spring rate. Assist will add progressiveness, but again, not the overall rate.

4kg front and 10kg rear do seem soft. Be on the lookout for spring bind on the front with such low rates.

For reference you are about 1.5kg higher than OE on both front and the rear.
