2002 chevy prizm throttle cable/kickdown cable assembly/reassembly?

my throttle has been sticking pretty bad only on startup after it has sat for a few hours (I have to hit the gas pretty hard to get through it, but then after that it is smooth). I have cleaned the throttle body, and sprayed a little bit of lithium grease on the throttle cable. looking at it, it seemed like the grease gummed up the assembly? so I took it apart to clean it and now I don't know how to put it back together. huge facepalm, I should've taken a picture so that I could reference it, but I just need to know how the springs go back in to put it back together. if anyone could share a video of this assembly being taken apart (I can't seem to find any) or even a picture of their assembly for me to reference, that'd be amazing!

UPDATE: got it back together, it was idling high but that was only because the nut was too tight so it was pulling the cable a bit
