If one spring manufacturer says you need a 0.85 fork spring will all the others say the same thing?

Example....Racetech has a calculator on their site that finds the correct spring for your bike taking into account your body weight.

Ohlin's does not...

If Racetech says I need a 0.85 can I assume that Ohlins will say the same?

It should be the same. I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't be, since even if the damping rates are different the spring is still doing exactly the same thing.

I've found the race tech spring calculator to be pretty good for the front but the rear is way out,from what I've experienced. So much so you can't get sags in the ball park. For example it tells me to run a 9.3Kg rear spring. Stock is 9.8 and too soft and I'm running a 10.5 and sags are spot on.
