Default Riders Backrest (internal springs) ??

I've noticed my riders backrest on my Streetglide doesn't have the tension like it did before. To better explain, there are a couple of internal springs in the backrest that spring back the pad to the upright position. One of mine is missing on one side.
I have looked at the hardware stores & a parts store but no luck with the same length needed. I was just thinking of bending a new spring on the end to fit but have experienced with ss that the spring will eventually just brake where it's been bent.
Can these springs be ordered through HD. Not finding any diagram with any of their backrest that breaks them down to the internal springs needed.

Send a PM to dawg here on this site. He seems to know just about every weird part number available for Harleys. He may be able to help you.
