Are brake return lever springs essential?

I am restoring a bike for a friend and these return springs from the shifter lever (Shimano EF65, 9-speed) are rusted through. I cannot find keep replacements - how
essential are they?

Thanks so much - really appreciate all the help I have got from these forums

Probably not essential - plenty of flat bar levers do without them - but it may help to give a positive feel in oepration and reduce rattling.

you could probably fashion a replacement out of suitable wire if you find the levers are a bit comprised without them.

The head mechanic at the shop is pretty firm on the subject of 'spare parts' after a job, so I'd say 'yes' :-)
