I make them! All of the springs are bent on a custom designed jig built specially for the purpose. They are EACH tested for fit and function on an UppaBaby Vista brake pedal.
Email me with your mailing address and I will send you an invoice instead of using the checkout feature. Canada Post and my hosting provider don't talk as well as one would hope, but it is easy for me to send an individual invoice and cut your shipping costs!
Yes! I have fixed a number of Vista V2 brakes where the torsion spring was intact but either twisted or not moving anymore (I have a video that shows this). Replacement of the faulty spring with the spring from my kit successfully fixed the brake. Before ordering a kit you could try reinstalling the faulty spring following the instructions in my video, and I would recommend a good dose of lubricant as well (I use a white lithium grease spray).
I use a number of different products for lubricating brakes and brake lines. However, if I were to choose just one I would recommend a good dose of white lithium grease spray (not WD-40). This should be readily available at your local hardware store and it is inexpensive. Apply the spray generously before reinstalling the brake pedal. It does a good job of lubricating the moving metal and plastic parts and penetrates into the nooks and crannies of the brake mechanism. It will also stay on.
