52 inch springs vs 56 inch springs

I have a set of 8 leaf springs currently on my 79 chevy 1/2 ton pickup. They measure out to be the 56" springs.

I also have a set of 8 leaf springs from an 86 3/4 ton pickup that measure out to be the 52" springs. The holes are in the frame already for me to be able move the spring hangers around to allow use of the 52 inch springs.

I assume the 52" springs, since they are for a 3/4 ton, will hold weight better than my 56" springs, even tho they are both 8 leafs. Correct? Or should I just stick with what I have?
