6kg is too stiff for rear Bilsteins (from Saab); Do you know if its ok with front Bilsteins (from VW GTI) to have 6kg springs? Unfortunately, we don't have specialists in my surroundings, so I'm pretty much stuck with what I buy initially.
Sadly I didn't save what was recommended with them.
But I can give you the valving:
Rebound: 2500 (2560) Newtons at 0.52 m/s
Compression: 730 (725) Newtons at 0.52 m/s

Your first post was about what is available in Europe. Now if you are willing to buy the springs from anywhere in the world, why not the shocks ?
The HTS camaro shocks are still available in the US.

There are many compagnies in Europe that make springs.

MCN "insert" used to be made by AVO (a reputable UK manufacturer).
I don't know if that is still the case.
