I would first flatten the end of the spring so it is square with the body and then fixture them in line is a piece of wood and braze the joint with a torch. The wood may burn up a bit but if it does the job of alignment, who cares.
I mention alignment because if they are not aligned very well, you will get binding on the inside of where ever it is going.
It will be permanent!
If you lived close, I could do it for you!

Oh, I missed that you need hundreds. I would still braze them because welding might pull to one side and cause mis alignment, BUT, I would make a steel fixture.

Cheers, Jim
