When I had my e36 and was putting bilsteins on it people told me the heavy dutys were not made to really put lowering springs on. So if you are looking to put together a suspension kit for your car like bilsteins/ h&r sport springs I would go with the standards but if you are looking to maintain factory ride height with oem springs and just freshen up your shocks you could go with heavy duty. Hope somebody else can chime in with more info.
