Hello dgarsa and welcome to the community!

 

Fixing a broken garage door spring can be a tricky and dangerous task. Can you tell me if you have Extensions springs or Torsion Springs?  How do you tell which is which?

 

If you follow this link, you can find out information about Extension Springs. 

 

The first picture below is an example of Extension Springs, the 2nd photo is of Torsion Springs.

Torsion Springs are something that must be done by a professional, the danger for injury is too high. Call you local garage door company for pricing with installation.
