Spring Differences Turbo/nonTurbo W123

Can anyone enlighten me on springs:

I believe Lemforder is OEM supplier for springs for the Mercedes 123. Am I correct?

Can anyone tell me if rear springs are interchangeable on Turbo and non-Turbo models of 300D?

The reason I am asking is because rear spring prices vary from $50-$125.

I would like to use the 123 324 36 04 - rear spring for the 123.133 model on my 123.130 because I can get those for $50 each as opposed to the 123 324 35 04 which are specified for 123.130 bodies (at $125 each).

Some shops sell the 123 324 36 04 for all diesels '78-'85. Does anyone have experience with this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
