My leaf springs are sagging, and I wanted to know which ones I should replace them with. websites like rusty's off road offer the factory springs, but they range in price from $60 to $105 apiece, and they all say "heavy duty". anybody know the difference??

Check 4WD Hardware. They have regular stock and heavy duty stock.

ok, but does anybody know the difference between $60 "heavy duty", and $100 "heavy duty"?

Has to do with the load rating of the spring. This is what I found:

The rear springs listed all interchange. The difference is in their load rating. There is a code sometimes either stamped into one of the rear leafs or it may be a Tag. That code is the load rating. The codes are and have a meaning as follows:

LL - 3-1/8" free arch, load rating 405
LM - 5-5/8" free arch, load rating 605 (This one is the most popular)
LS - 6" free arch, load rating 675
LT - 7" free arch, load rating 755

That's copied from here

Rusty's also has an LN, not sure what the load rating is on that one.

I'm not telling you to buy from them, but Quadratec has 2 options - Standard and Heavy Duty (not including bushings) clicky
