Paul,
It would be like putting Coppers on the front and BFG's on the back, it would work but it is not the normal thing to do. You could try selling the springs that you have on now and buy a new set that are heaver, or you could put Polyair bags in the back to help with the extra weight.

I can not see why not ,Springs are springs no matter what colour they are.They are just coils of (wire /steel ) if your back end (lol) is sagging go for a stronger spring.

I agree. Just a case of finding the right spring you require for the weight being carried.

Gday
As Wayne said, if you have the heaviest spring and they are sagging (or is that struggling) under the weight, your options are to put polairs there (or similar) to assist them or buy some spacers to lift the rear up to be level with the front (if you are happy with everything else)
If you had an 80, i know a guy with some 22mm diameter blue rear springs :-)
