Replacing spring system in double hung windows

I have several MW wood windows from 1990 where the spring system has "popped" and the plastic stopper and in some cases, the spring mechanism itself is exposed and loose on the sash. The jamb is vinyl. Can I replace the spring assembly. We are selling the home and would rather put remodeling dollars into a better resale investment. If so, ideas on where to get the parts?

It would probably help if we could see what you see, so here is a link on how to put pictures in your post.
