Default Toploader detent spring length?

Evaluating what needs replacing inside my toploader and I measured the 3 shift detent springs in mine (uses 3 short springs) and they are .75", and 2 @ .80". I noticed that new ones on David Kee's site are .90". Not sure if they are really comparable to the originals however. Has anyone measured their short detent springs and know what they measure? I could probably stretch these a bit to try to lengthen them slightly. Or just buy new ones.

I would recommend that you buy new. They can't be much.

Yes, just buy the new springs.

Stretching springs is a no-no.

I bought new ones. Definitely longer than the old ones.
