We have old sectional garage door > 30 yrs and it has extension springs on both sides. Each spring is a double spring ( a smaller diameter spring in a larger diameter spring with heavy metal clips on both ends).
Now one of the smaller spring has broken but the larger spring is still intact.
I am trying to replace but has not found the same construct yet. Any suggestion where would I be able to find an extension spring similar to this one. Also should I replace the pulleys and wires too. Our spring system does not have a safety wire and I am thinking about adding it too.
I would very much appreciate your responses regarding where to get the whole assembly and also referral to any websites to get detailed instructions about replacing the garage door extension springs.
Thanks a bunch.
