Hello! Please see our Series 160 coil spring, I think this may work for you. As for the cover, see our 15-150D double coil support.
A quick learner from Akron, Oh says:
How do I figure out what pound of coil rating do I need for the double coils? Would both sides be the same?

Tom from SWISCO responded:
Yes, both sides are usually the same. To determine the correct Series 160 option, just refer to the number printed on your current springs.
A quick learner says:
Thank you, I can't find any numbers on the ones I have now, is there a formula or weight of window option I can go by?

Thanks Again,
Mark

In that case, tell me the weight of your window sash. I also assume you have two springs on each side, for a total of four?

Once I know how heavy your sash is I can recommend the best Series 160 option!
