I recently bought a Wagner brake spring kit for my '67 XR7,but two of the springs are not included in the kit.According to my shop manual,they are called "shoe retracting assist springs".They are seven inches long with a coil at each end and attach to both brake shoes.

Are these available separatly?
Are they necessary or will the brakes function properly without them?

Help,user experience and recommendatons would be greatly appreciated as you guys really seem to know what you're talking about.
