Default GT rear springs

I know the GT is supposed to have a "sport suspension", but are the springs really that different from the non-GT versions? I need new rear springs (for an '06), and a set I found that won't lower it are the Moog 81053. There are several web sites that say they will fit Cruisers 2001 and later, but I'm fuzzy on that because of the apparent suspension differences.

Just buy oEm from a junkyard

Not worth paying good money if you only want a stock look and feel

Although the part numbers are very conflicting through the years I believe that the "sport suspension" refers to the tire and wheel package not the suspension parts? I would still like someone to update me with empirical data/information on this if I am "guessing" incorrectly by my limited research through MOPAR parts listings of part numbers current, discontinued and superseded? And to add I could never find the engineering specification from Chrysler on any year PT Cruiser springs front or rear for the matter?

IMO I would just find a well known aftermarket set that fits your budget?
