'87 Comanche Throttle Sticking

Hi, I've got a 1987 Comanche, 4.0L automatic with a sticky throttle. It doesn't reliably return to idle after letting off the gas. This problem has been happening for years, but lately it's gotten so bad that I don't feel comfortable driving it. I removed the throttle cable today to see if that was the problem, but it still sticks without it attached. After lubricating every part of the throttle linkage I could see, I decided the throttle spring itself most likely needs to be replaced.

The problem is: I can't find any information about this spring. All my searches for "throttle spring" return images of springs of a completely different type. The spring I'm looking for is one that is designed to be twisted, not pulled.

Does anyone know where I can find one of these?
