Unknown Crossbow 850 balance length

A professional from Raleigh ,NC says:
I am a remodeler in Raleigh, NC and have a client that is selling a rental home in which all of the balances have fallen apart. I am unsure hoe to ascertain the proper length for each window since none of the existing balances are intact. Can you help me determine the balance sizes I need using another method?
Thank you in advance,

Sure, Greg, I'd be happy to help. Please tell me the width and height of the visible glass for each sash in question and we can recommend a balance length in each instance.
