I think Turner Motorsports used to carry them? Maybe they only have the gaskets/donuts? Otherwise, match up via hardware store/online vendor as mentioned above is your best bet.

Via @Clemster , these are supposed to be the exact spec.
The 5113 does work but you'll need to bend the hook end open a bit to get clearance. Sure beats paying big bucks for a set from Supersprint. You'd think they were made from titanium.

I bought mine last year for the same price listed on their site - took a few weeks to get it https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-302458-tms302458/

Thanks everybody, it looks like these are special springs, my local hardware store has nothing similar, the century spring ones don't fit to the collector bracket, but can be bent to fit the 4 hole plate, I bought the headers from clemster, so i'm assuming that's what he sent me

It looks like turnermotorsport is the only place for original at around $100 for a set and a long waiting time


The donuts were cheap and easy to find, I am currently using snowmobile springs, same length and design, but thinner wire
