Garage door springs are tightly wound under incredible tension. They are designed to lift a heavy garage door with ease. When they break, or a novice tries to fiddle with them, they can cause serious bodily injury and even death. Unless you really know what you are doing, replacing the spring is a job best left to the professionals.
Squeaky springs, on the other hand, is an easy DIY job. All it takes is a little grease applied to the springs. If the springs continue to make noise, you may have a serious problem. Have them inspected by a professional.
Springs may also be out of balance. Again, this is a job that is best left to a technician. Failing to fix it will only make the problem worse.
