I'm looking for 4 small compression springs.  diameter 20mm that will push a small drawer in a cabinet box I'm making out about 30mm when the catch is released.  Any ideas?

Difficult to visualise but can the compression be tension ? using small bungee cords attached to carcass and back of draw & cut to correct length to give correct "spring" when catch released.???. 🙁😋

The drawer needs to be able to pull right out, so I intend to attached small springs in the back of the drawer recess.  I've found some on Ebay so I'm hoping they will do the job.
