Default Tail Wheel Springs? Where

I need some tail wheel springs. Straight on both ends would be preferred. I checked McMaster and the only thing they have is straight on one end.

You can get them at any ace hardwear or try a auto parts store.

I use compression springs and run a straight wire with a hook through each end. Each hook catches on an opposite end loop. Then I have what you need except it works in compression instead of extension. It cannot be overextended that way. Look at full scale TW springs like on a J3. Good luck.
