Extension Springs normally are beside the garage door. They are next to tracks for a sectional or just the arms on a one-piece garage door system. They are slightly cheaper than torsion springs. Although, they are almost as durable. But they can’t lift heavier garage doors. Nevertheless, the life of the springs can be extended by lubricating them with garage door lubricant.
Torsion Springs are above the garage door and are compatible with all garage door openers. Unlike the extension springs, they’re much thicker.
