Old Man Emu Leaf Springs +\- issues

So I just got my ome leaf springs. 3 of them have plus signs, 1 of them has a negative sign.

So I called arb USA down in Florida they tell me these signifify specs, the plus sign indicates over spec stats. The minus signifies below spec.

Should I be concerned that one spring essentially doesn't "match?"

I feel like they all need to match, is this wrong?

Thanks everyone

I would want all springs to match.

Just guessing, but I would expect the (-) spring will allow the Jeep to sit lower on that corner.

I'll bet you are anxious to get started on your project. I advise returning the odd spring to the vendor for one that matched the other three. Contact the vendor first for a return tag. I would expect the vendor to pay for the return shipping and the shipping of the correct spring to you. Did the springs come with shackle bushings. If not, perhaps the vendor will send you a set of bushings that fit OME springs as a courtesy because of their screw-up.

We are all interested in how this turns out. I assume you bought the OME springs from ARB.

Send the vendor a copy of this post.

Good Luck, L.M.

Thanks everyone. I will let you know what happens.
I think that all springs should be the same too. I am guessing that tire wear would be different on the lower side.
The signs are located on top of the springs, painted on with gold lettering.

Just took a quick look at mine and 2 are +'s and 2 seem to not be marked at all, but the shipping sticker is put on right in that area and I only did a quick peel off and the adhesive remained. I did find this p,aying around on the web:
