There are 3 different length springs. All models use a slightly shorter spring on one side (I think it has to do with the weight of the gas tank or something?). So the wagon uses the tall and...

I usually go with KNS or tirerack (they carry centric, hawk etc).

Did you remove anything else to get to it? Especially anything in the steering column/wheel? I'd suspect something like the clockspring or connector for the drivers side airbag got bumped?

If you've never done it, you're likely already a few years late. There's a distance AND time limit for the belt, iirc 10 years.

They're designed to crumple a bit in an accident, if they're too strong you run the risk of damaging the unibody mounting points which is a much bigger issue.
