Yeah that's one of the options I'm looking into.

If you become a paying member of the forum, you can post a wanted to buy add in the classifieds. That's what I did, and I got a whole seat worth of springs for $20 from another member.
I'll be paying for the membership later today so I can do just that.

But, where can I find the repro springs? I have yet to find them and have been looking for a bit now. LMC has an 'end spring kit' listed, but I think that's just the support spring.
