A question from electric field

An insulating sphere of mass m and positive charge q is attached to a spring with length h and spring constant k and is at equilibrium. An infinitely long wire with positive linear charge density λ is placed a distance l away from the charged mass at equilibrium (note that the position of the top of the spring is fixed). The previous length of the spring was h. What is the new length of the spring in terms of h, q, k, λ, l as needed.
