Default Detroit ez locker spring kit. HELP

I have A Detroit ez locker for my Chrysler 8.25 rear end, I ruined the springs in it this winter and I can't find a spring kit anywhere they quit making this locker 3 years ago so I'm probably screwed but I miss my locked rear end so badly that this is worth a try.

I have the remnants of my blown ez, I can check if the springs are intact if you'd like. My advice though (as if you care) is to get a different, similar but superior locker like locrite or Aussie.

Don't forget the new Spartan locker either.

That'd be great if u have springs for it! As far as buying a new locker id rather not if I can find springs for my ez. The ez locker OS one you either love or hate and I loved mine so id like to stick with it. If you do have springs I would like to get them from you, my phone number is 231-499-9743. Give me a call if u come up with some springs. Thanks!

i am not familiar with the internals of the ez locker so this may be a stupid question but are the springs the same or close to the same as the ones out of a lockright? i think i have some lockright springs laying around somewhere.

This was my sugestion, Does anyone have a set of springs for an aussie/spartan/lock rite that they could take pics and measurements of so that we could compare his broken springs.

If there the same we can order a spring kit for said similar locker.

I will look in the barn today and see if I can find them. I few little springs in a 30x80 barn might end up being a needle in a haystack though. If I find them I will get some measurements for you.
