Did them at my parents. Turning that spring down was nerve racking, especially when I realized I needed to get another 4-5 turns out of it

thats how you know your repair guy is legit, because if he has complete fingers he hasnt learned yet.

I think mine was like $150 In parts. I think it gets more expensive when you call a repair guy who only does one of the two main manufacturers. And they don’t tell you they are converting your Type B into a Type A spring.

My dad took a socket to the middle of his forehead trying to fix ours. Could've killed him, but luckily he only has a nasty scar.

I'd pay the $335 to not fuck with that spring.
