    Great video, I literally used WD40 to lubricate the chain before watching this video then thought hmmm, there has to be more to it. So I googled and found this video. Thanks @PrecisionGarageDoor

    The center bracket for the torsion bar on my old 1970's home is just a bored block of aluminum. It took me the longest time to locate the horrific noise the garage door would make. That whole bar would vibrate like a violin string. It was so loud, the neighbor across the street would know the exact time I'd arrive home late at a night.

    Once I did finally figure out it was the torsion bar, I drilled the block aluminum center support with a tiny bit. Now, once every four years or so I shoot the hole with a pump of the grease gun.

    The door is now silent as silent can be for the age of the door.

    The last time I replaced a torsion spring I wanted to make it so I'd never have to replace one again. I calculated out a couple of long springs of bigger gauge wire. Per my cycle count estimations, the springs should last thirty years.

    I called these guys here in Ohio. Spring was broke, and even though I am very mechanical, after watching YouTube videos, the right tools, springs, risk of getting hurt, almost made it wash.
    I think it was like $350-375. He did program my keypad for free but it never held. Also one of the sides is now out of wack, not wound tight like the other side. It's been about 18 months.
    Was a good job. Quick. Very friendly. Are the negatives their fault? Meh, I don't know. I use it a lot.
    Would I recommend them? Yes

    I have a hurricane reinforced garage doors it's so heavy and loud. I wonder if they a hard rubber wheels that ride on the track to soften the vibrations. Just annoying when my wife leaves and I'm sleeping it sounds and feels like the house is moving on the 2nd floor.
