I changed the fontsize of my section title using the following code:

                                  {-2ex \@plus -1ex \@minus -2ex}%
                                  {1ex \@plus.2ex}%

which does the work. However it keeps the spacing (between the lines of the section title, I used two columns article) that I had with the default fontsize. Does anyone know how I can adapt the code to change the spacing?

I minimal example I set up with your redefinition has a line-spacing of 20pt. You must be doing something else then. Please include a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. – Werner Sep 12 '12 at 21:07
thanks for the tip Kurt! also awkwardly I had forgotten the 20 in \normalfont\fontsize{10}{20} was for specifying the spacing, so i fixed my issue through that remark Werner! sorry about that! – vince Sep 12 '12 at 21:19
