I ordered replacement pickup height screws and springs (bridge humbucker wouldn't adjust up/down) but it looks like I needed 13/16" long springs instead of 1-5/8" that I ordered.

Can I use the longer springs or will there be too much tension, i.e. "sprung" too much ?

Worst case, I just re-use the existing springs with the new screws.

Well, in my impatience, I tried the long springs and it was clear they wouldn't work. If they'd have compressed "straight", they may have worked, but instead, they got all wavy. I used the old springs and they are working fine. Most importantly, the pickup adjusts up/down just fine now.

Most of my springs are all wavy and well beyond the point of coil bind... but it doesnt really affect anything except how the spring looks. At least, I didnt have any trouble with it.
