Two spring that have been removed from the garage door to be replaced. You will see that the top spring is broken while the bottom one doesn’t look broken. Both springs are actually damaged and should not be used, as even though the bottom spring doesn’t look damaged there is equally number of cycles placed on the spring. So it is a week away from breaking as well. We assure that we replaced both springs during a spring change. We will never just change one spring in a duel spring assembly.
