Suspension bit swap update: swapped one strut/spring/hub/brake assembly this afternoon. The springs look identical - same thickness and number of turns. So I have my doubts that the Swift ones are any stiffer.

But the Swift brakes are a bit bigger, so it wasn't all for nothing. We'll probably swap the other one on Friday.
