Pretty sure all TransGo kits have that spring. It shouldn't cause binding/sticking. If the Bore is severely worn/grooved it may be causing the problem. Only Reaming & a new Valve will fix it, if that's what's happening.
If you've tried the snatch/jerk & release method to free the TV and the problem is returning there's something wrong in the Bore or alot of trash/debri in it.
