I'm pretty sure all the springs are the same size, or at least supposed to be.

Could be someone mixed springs from a kit clutch with stock springs.
The manual should have the free length of the spring. Kit clutches often have stiffer springs and it can make the lever pull tough..
Not surwhat that has to do with 2nd gear, can you describe that more?
