so these springs apparently break about every 5 to 7 years and one of my 2
went sproing over the weekend.
from scouring sears, home depot and lowes, they sell everything I need, except
torsion springs (they sell the vertical type, not the horizontal type that runs
bar across the garage)
from reading a few online sites, it appears many people have written excellent
descriptions and have successfully replaced their own springs without dying or
maimed or blinded - a few even have excellent step-by-step videos, though some
these clearly sell parts online.
what say you ? at issue is why should I pay someone close to 300 for a job where
parts cost 30 to 65 ?
easing the tension on the spring is no laughing matter but it's no more
lifting your car on a jack and replacing a tire.
