Table leaf support

I have a 1982 Freedom 33 and the locking supports for the leaves to the dining table are shot. They are giant springs that compact to just a few inches when the table is closed, so any replacement needs to be able to similarly compact. Does anyone know where to get a replacement or have suggestions for others that might work?

Found this spring on Amazon that may work for your table leaf.

I have purchased a similar looking piece of hardware in smaller size from West Marine as hold-open for Nav desk on our F38. I'm sure they could order in heavier size or supply you with the name of the manufacturer.
