Default Springs for brake linkage

Looking to use springs instead of fuel tubing for my brake linkage, not sure what springs to use. Any suggestions or experience?

Well definitely not a spring out of your wife's car to big and
She might get mad
And not from a ink pin to small
That narrows it down to what comes with the throttle linkage kit from Losi or fuel tubing
Don't have to many more options that comes to mind
We live in a digital age now nothing with springs and gears
Available to fix anything

I was able to find some springs in home depot and cut them to the right length.

Use the springs from the carb needles. Josh Alton taught me this trick at the Canadian Nats last weekend. I'd use the heavier one for rear braking.
