        ...AMEN!.... As far as the bar the teflon tape may work well, as it's similar to a nylon bushung that others use (on different vibratos), macsking tape will work, but it gums up bad ... a suitable spring can be found at some of the more complete hardware stores.

          You could also try filling the hole with silicone, threading the arm in where you want it to stay most of the time, wipe off the stuff that squishes out, and let cure for a day or two (don't play it, or put it in the case; covered over on a work bench on it's back is fine). You can always unscrew it, but you'll have to repeat the process if you put it back in. Never done this my self, but I got it from a guy that tried it, he said it worked as well as anything else. Sounds reasonable, but like I said, never tried it myself. FWIW

            OK I'm a little confused... I have three strats and none of them have springs in the bar handle? They are all vintage style tail pieces so is it the new style that has a spring? I have alwasy used teflon tape to "tighten" the handle so it stays where I want it. It works for me! but a spring under the handle.... never heard of that before.
