Checked google, youtube and steadicam forum for a bit. Does anyone know where I can find some information regarding how much spring tension I am suppose to have in my stabilizer vest arm? Came tv vest doesnt have a manual so I am trying to seek help in forums. Thank you in advance.

The spring tension will depend on the weight of the camera you've got mounted on the Steadicam, You'll have to set it by trial and error, since this weight can vary depending on the lens and accessories you've mounted on the camera.
