What Is a Garage Door Spring and What Does it Do? 

There are two types of garage door springs: extension springs and torsion springs, with the latter being the more common of the pair. Both serve the purpose of assisting the lifting of the garage door and maintaining a smooth and balanced opening and/or closing. Essentially, the spring acts as a counterbalance.

Extension Springs

These are typically located above the horizontal garage door track and run perpendicular to the garage door. 

Torsion Springs

Torsion springs are typically centrally located above the garage door and run parallel to the garage door opening.
