3 leaf or 4 leaf lowering springs?

I just ordered a new rear end from JD Race and Restoration in Ohio.
They told me it should be here in about a week. I figured it was a good time to order some new leaf springs.
The new rear has multi-leaf perches.
While looking through Summit's website I see that there are 3 leaf and 4 leaf lowering springs. What's the difference (other than 1 leaf)?
Is one preferred over another?
I did a search and didn't come up with anything.

Thanks

Most people use the 4 leaf spring but with spacers on the top , to help lower the back end.
