I can measure the stock spring and post wire diameter, number of coils, uncompressed length, and outside diameter of my stock 0.7bar spring as I currently have my wastegate disassembled.
I also happen to have a 1.0bar spring that I can compare to this one for the same measurements.
Just hang tite as I won't get to it till the weekend likely. I may try to post spring rates as well, because I intend to measure the springs on a scale too.
Did you disassemble your wastegate to see if it is somehow shimmed or otherwise hung up. It may not be the spring at all.
