Default Valve spring issues

I recently purchased a new set of modern valves and springs from a reputable company. I installed them for a short duration then removed them because I needed to do some head work prior to moving on. I am now ready to install when I noticed that one spring is shorter than the others by about 0.25 in... I would imagine that this difference will cause a difference in spring pressure compared to the others. I have a mild cam so Iím looking for a 60# pressure. No access to spring tester so I may set up the bathroom scale. Just wondering if anyone has encountered this? I donít like the fact that they are different lengths. I may have to purchase a new set or find some v8 springs with spacers. Thanks!
