Most definitely, it's important to remember that extension garage door springs are replaced together. An overhead door moving with one old and one new spring won't have great balance and such problems are not usually solved with regular adjustment. That's one of the rules we often remind our customers of and definitely check whether they need extension or torsion springs. Although typically lightweight doors will just need extension springs and heavy ones will need torsion springs, some doors will carry two pairs of extension springs or two torsion springs. In the case of the latter, it's always best to get the same size torsion springs.
Knowing the weight of the door is extremely important and is our prime concern since its weight will determine which spring types will be needed. Torsion springs also differ in terms of the inside diameter. The heavier the door, the larger the diameter! Our intention is always to give the best support possible to the garage door. Spring measurement is important. The height of the door is also important. It is necessary for extension springs which stretch. The width of the door is necessary for torsion springs.
