The first thing I noticed in your photos is that your top tilt latch is missing. Consider going with our 26-244 as a replacement. I will also place a video below on how this is done. For the coil springs, you will need to tilt the sash in and show us a complete coil balance system so we can further assist you.

We do have the tilt latch for the traco windows

Thanks for getting back to us. Looking at the style of your old pivot shoe and coil covers, I think you'll want our Series 180 coil balance. This is designed to work with the 15-087 and 15-086 covers, which look to match yours very closely.

You will need the stamp off the old spring to confirm the best Series 180 option.
