first figure out what you actually want.
stiffness (see 'Hooks law' for a definition)
compression or tension? (and if tension what starting load)
which of the above parameters is diameter, or do you want a
material, (eg spring steel/stainless etc)
finish (black/bright/zinc/nickel/gold passivate/galv....)
Then hit the yellow pages and look up spring manufacturers.
OTOH I've seen racks with springs in bolt shops and hardware shops.
