Hello, Carl. Hopefully I can help. Please see the following parts and let me know if they can work: our Series 160 coil spring, 15-150T triple coil spring support, 15-199 pivot shoe and 26-378 pivot bar. Carefully compare this hardware to your own to be sure that they match.
A quick learner from Florida says:
Thanks Paul....

They look right, but as you advise, I will check each part closely. My only mystery is how the springs work and how they connect to each other and/or to the other adjoining parts.... is there some sort of diagram??

You are a lifesaver...thanks so much... arl

The springs all hook to the shoe; you hook the top spring to the bottom spring hole and then just add on springs until they're all in. They are lined up behind the 15-150T support. See the video below for more information.
