Try to locate a spring(factory) or workshop...it's pretty easy for those guys to make you a piece of spring with the right dimensions...
check google or perhaps the yellow pages...they made some crazy springs for me and didn't cost me a lot. ;)
how much is a lot to you? cuz im only fifteen and tryin to save all my paychecks for my car?

what i did one time is take a drill bit the size of your antenna and wrap paper clip or welding wire aroud it. to me welding wire was alot easier to work with but both are easy to use and cheap.

thanks for the tips, i just used some thin guage wire that my dad had and wrapped it around a thin dial, the sping looks soo tight on my cylandars, and they actually work.
