Dove Tail Ramp Springs

Im running a 18' Chevrolet cutaway box truck with 2 ramp dove tail. One of the springs broke. The springs slide into the rod that holds the ramps to the first part of the dovetail.

Does anyone know and or have a link where I can buy some more springs, Ill likely just replace all 4 if I can find them.

I bought 2 from a dealer that sold trailers/parts. I installed them on my 6x12 Towpro trailer. How close are you to Gainesville Ga? I've still got 2 that I didn't use.

No, If it's what I'm thinking It's about 2" in dia, about 6" or 7" long and the ends stick out in different direction's from each other.

Looks like around 3/8 to 1/2 inch round and 6 to 7 inches long with the ends oppsite eachother.

I don't know how far Gainsville is. My plan is to replace all 4 if I can find some.

Might try a place that sells truck parts. Similar springs are used on lift gates.
