I noticed when checking my fuel tank for the back splash of gas. That I have a broken coil spring. I think I can get stock ones for a little bit over $30 at rockauto made by Moog part numbers 81381. Besides the dealer does anyone know where I can get the rubber seats ?

Other than the dealer or a salvage yard, I don't know where else to get them. But they aren't fancy items. You can fabricate one from any basic form of rubberized sheet, such as indoor/outdoor v-groove matting, preferably the type with fabric mesh in the base. You can get the matting at HD or Lowes. I'd double the thickness on the matting by meshing the v-grooves together. You could glue them together with contact cement to keep them solid. Just a thought...
