It's not required, but it can extend the life of the spring. It's used in industrial applications and has been for many years. When I see springs gooped with grease, I'll remove most of it, but leave a little bit on there.

Highny, you can use garage door grease available at Canadian Tire for gears, springs and spring guides (only if you have a metal spring guide though).

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
