Default Rear Springs - Is there a difference?

I have a 01 base PT with rear drums-the springs are saggy, mainly on the driver side from a blown shock, or a very fat previous owner.

There is a 01 Limited at the yard, I know it has rear disc. My question is are the springs the same for a base PT vs a Limited?

If they are OEM they are the same. If they are aftermarket, only difference you may notice is in ride quality. Some aftermarkets are very hard and ride rough, were others are softer and ride like a buick :-D haha

I used the Limited springs, they looked pretty much the same (coil diameter, height), installed them and now my PT sits nice and level, not leaning on the driver side.

The old driver side spring was much weaker then the passenger side, I know that rear shock was totally blown out when I bought it, must have been blown out for a long time.
