Default Source For Garage Door Springs?

Anyone know where I can purchase garage door torsion springs in Pcola? None of the places that I've called will sell them without installation.

I bought a spring last year from www.youdoitstore.com. They give step by step instructions on choosing the right spring and installation. I believe I paid around $30 for it. Hope this helps

This is pretty common that retailers won't sell them without installation. One is that if they sell it to you, they can't mark the price up as high! I would look online, but I would caution you like the others. This can be very dangerous! I would look online for your model's repair instructions. You may realize that you don't have a special tool. I always research projects beforehand so that I don't waste money on a project I can't do!

For those projects I can't tackle, does anyone know a Seattle handyman?
