    TRy this steps. It works in NX 4, 6, 7.5 & hopefully it will work in higher versions also.
    1. Make Helix using "insert ---> curve ---> Helix.
    2. Key in the values/parameters in as per your requirment.
    3. Make a sketch(Circle) in XZ plane.
    4. Use the command Swept(Insert--->Sweep--->Swept).
    5. Insert plane constraining it parallel to XY plane & select end point of Helix.\
    6. Do the same as point 5 at other end.
    7. Use the Trim Body Command(Insert--->Trim--->Trim Body) to trim the spring at end using the plane craeted in point 5.
    8. Do same as point 7 at other end.

    You can use GC toolkit to develop any sort of gears or springs without complex modeling.
