The standard garage door torsion system typically contains total of 3 bearings to support the shaft; 2 Bearings on the left and right end bearing plates and 1 steel bearing or nylon bushing inside the torsion spring’s stationary cone. Heavyweight systems or commercial systems may contain 4 steel bearings along the shaft, depends on how the system has been designed and on how many garage door torsion springs and torque level the system require to stay balanced. Nylon bushings can wear out, therefore, when a garage door spring repair is needed and the torsion springs are being replaced the bushing must be inspected. On double-sided spring anchor bracket, with left and right torsion springs, nylon bushing must be installed in 1 stationary cone only (for each pair). Installing 2 or more nylon bushings in both left and right torsion springs’ stationary cones can damage the torsion springs.

Warning: Carrying out a garage door repair/installation can be dangerous if not preformed according to the local and national standards and verified by a professional.
