replacement for balance spring on my tilt out/in windows

A handy person from Virginia Beach VA says:
I am looking for a replacement for my balance spring broken pieces, i have included the best picture i can take.
i think the broken piece is a pivot shoe based on similar pictures i see on the website The dimension of my part as close as i can measure is 2 inches high by 15/16 wide by 5/8 deep. none of your pivot lock shoes in the pictures on the replacement page seem to match. i am hesitant to take the window apart until i can find the part.
Thanks for any help you can be

Hey, Chris. It's hard to say. The best I can make out as your pivot shoe, which resembles our 15-140. This is often used with our Series 150 coil spring. Look this hardware over and tell me what you think!

Thanks again

Thank you for posting. I identified your different window parts. 15-143, 144 & 145 hold the coil spring Series 150 in place. We will need the numbers printed on the spring when ordering them for the correct weight. The pivot shoe that goes with these parts is 15-140. It is 1-1/4" wide by 17/32" thick. Please recheck your pivot shoe dimensions and let us know so we can ensure we find you the proper parts.
