Those are the springs for the 20v type 44q--IOW, you're ordering the 
"correct" springs for our car, where I installed 29921, the springs for the 
V8.  According to my notes, the rears on the two spring sets are almost the 
same (310 vs 330 lb/in at installed height--remember, these are progressive 
springs), but the fronts are substantially stiffer on the V8 set (220 vs 
300 lb/in at installed height).  My experience probably won't be directly 
applicable for you, and you may not have the same issues I had.  Have fun 
with them.
