    is it true that the 54t ratchets come with stiffer springs?

    I didn't change out the springs when I put the 54t in.

    No, the springs are the same in all ratchet kits.

    You can always stretch the springs out a bit to get more preload and thus stronger engagement between the two ratchet rings. More preload means grease and debris will be less able to keep the rings from engaging properly. But you'll also get a bit more noise and drag.
