The original spring tends to weaken over time. The blue spring is an upgraded spring which eliminates low fuel pressure and as Rick said low pressure = big bucks.

Updating the blue spring, shouldn't stop a truck owner from installing a Fuel Psi gauge. Just because someone drops in the spring, doesn't guarantees good fuel psi.
