Default NAPA part number for brake shoe return spring?

What's the NAPA (or AutoZone, or Advance, etc) part number for the brake shoe return spring for the -715? I need to get a set prior to doing my brakes this coming weekend.

No NAPA part numbers, but here's what I found in my brakes file:

Brake Return Springs

the federal stock #2530-9170871.The manufacturer's part #65909-943654. That is out of the Memphis equipment parts book. (from Will Wright 29 April 02)

Memphis Equipment has the return springs for, I think, $3.00 each. (from bump r #2734 7/11/99)

If you are referring to the two top return springs....Memphis has them at $10 a piece....I just bought two from there in January.

Forget finding them at Napa and at other places, save your gas time and effort and bite the bullet...

The springs are unique. Nothing modern off the shelf will work. Surprised? I believe that old Studebaker trucks may have used them, but thats a lot of help now.

How about posting a picture of a spring with a ruler next to it.
I have 2 Pre 71 J trucks here. One with a dana 53 and one with a dana 44. Plus an early IH 5 lug dana 60 with 12 inch brakes. I am wondering if there might be a match there with one of them.

Rock Auto has a pretty extensive inventory too.

Post a pic (that we can see) with a ruler.

FYI, the oem M715 brake parts were originally sourced from Studebaker trucks per AB Linn.
