Mung unfortunately I read and asked questions, and I was told (and sorry, it felt that way when I bought them) that they are a (pair) of 10% stiffer springs, for total 20%, if you use both. I cannot tell you much more on how I know, or have been led to believe it, but that is what I believe and would keep telling everyone. Mine came from Adrian at lewisport.
