What's the worst thing that can happen if I overspec my garage springs?

My garage door extension springs are getting stretched out and janky, so I want to replace them. Problem is, they are supposed to have a color coded mark on the ends but it looks like it wore all away, so I have no idea which weight rating to use. I read that 140 lb is pretty typical, but that's just a guess based on internet searches. If my door is much lighter, am I doing any harm by over speccing the springs? Thanks!
