That spring assy comes all as one part. The insert into the arm, the cap for the tube and the shaft and spring. Sells for about $50 or so. Get back to me with the model number off the end of the roller tube and I can get you a part number. They have made several versions of this and the overall length is important in rating the spring. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.
