No, that's only what they are rated up to. Make sure you test your seat pressure to determine when your springs are leaving the valve seat. As long as your springs have the proper seat pressure for the cam, I don't see anything wrong with the springs. I would double check to see if those springs are recommended for your cam. One way to change seat pressure is shimming, but it should be done by a good head builder.
