Default Replacement Springs for Arch supreme

Does anyone know of a source for replacement springs for the Avid Arch Supreme V brake? I know they havven't been made in a few years, but maybe someone has NOS parts somewhere. TIA!

The caliper spring or little arch spring? I broke the tiny one and am in the process of homebrewing one. I can help if that's the one.

For the caliper spring, I've heard you can try using a spoke to fashion one.

I'm talking about the arch spring. That is a good suggestion about using a spoke. I may have to try that. If the other one(s) break, I will look you up. Thanks!

No sweat.

I just overhauled a set that I have. If you need help with swapping out the bearings, I got instructions and part number. I learned it the hard way, no need to see others repeat the same mistake.
