I'm surprised no one has mentioned that yet.
I thought "Greasing the spring" meant something else

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).

Really? I don't need grease for my spring... Hummm... THANKS!!!

I bought some lithium grease. It doesn't say "white lithium grease", but just "lithium grease" from Canadian tires... Will it still work?....
