"Heavy Duty" Springs listed on build sheet?

On my build sheet it lists heavy duty springs. I noticed in looking up parts if I were to order replacements there are the two types listed.

What exactly are these, how much bigger are they whats the difference and the deal? My Jeep originally came with a hardtop also. I have always thought it looked a little taller than some Jeeps - especially in the back.

Unless it's for a towing package, I wasn't aware of two different spring set-ups?

The HD springs are just stiffer. They keep the Jeep from sagging when the hard top is on or towing. If you have the top off or a soft top with the HD springs, then you will probably sit higher.
