dont do it yourself since you bought pos low cycle springs and thats why you doing it for the third time since you lived there
good springs last 10-15 years and we charge 160 installed for both tax and everything
but since its been worked on by a "do it yourselfer" three times now i bet its just going to be a joyfull job

i would highly recomend some steel winding bars

Did you know that if you lose hold of one of those winding bars (the metal ones) they fly across the garage and embed themselves in the wall??
