If you mean this one mine measures 2 3/8" x 9" (compressed). I'm going to take a calculated guess that uncompressed it's about 10" long.

I wonder how close it is to the seat spring in size.

The grader spring and the seat spring are the same. They both have the same part number.

Not sure if that means I have a really good eye, or am just lucky!

That's good to know. I have a seat mount apart in the shop and I just measured the spring. Comes to 2 3/8" x 11" uncompressed. A seat spring shouldn't be difficult to find. I'm sure some of the sponsers on here have them.

Already bought one, that's why I wanted to know the length. Now I need to figure how long the rod is that goes through the spring?

The rod is 17" to the spring side of the disc. The parallel stock on the other side of the spring is 7 1/4" long @ (in case you need that dimension).
