on this vehicle it would be typical to have the sports or 'S-line' suspension fitted but its not a given

There is a sticker with all the build-codes in the compartment that houses the spare tire. It is on the lower RH side of the body Typically the designations are 1BA for standard suspension and 1BE for 'sport'

however black shocks usually mean the standard suspension so the springs should match that

and I'd strongly suggest to have a 4 wheel alignment done after fitting new springs ( they should be replaced in pairs)
