Default Shock spring storage... What's best?

I've got a box full of springs, and it's messing with my mind... I'd like to get them at least paired up so that it doesn't take a fortnight to find a matching set...
I was going to bag tie pairs together, but I thought I'd ask and see what other folk do??

These are perfect:

Divider pulls out so you can store anti roll bars underneath.

It can fit 5 pairs of rears or 10 pairs of fronts.

It almost feels like it was designed to store 1:10th springs

The Avid springs are supplied in these tubes.

I run the LMR boxes for my springs. By far the best solution I've found. I'll show you tomorrow Tim.

I have used them for a while and I like them! However, there are cheaper options. Just search for flip cap sample tubes and you can get a large quantity of them at a small price. Maybe you can find other racers to share a large package with.

Tim - what solution did you go with? Thinking the LMR box could also store pistons etc as well?

I went with the LMR boxes. They're not perfect, but do the job.
