And if yo ever buy a spring be sure to keep the metal thingee that holds the spring. you can use it instead of the strap.
Glad youy found that to be of some use. Keep saving money doing your own repairs (if you have more time than work), and it will make a big difference at the end of the year. Plus its nice to be able to get things back up and running as soon as parts are available instead of when a shop can get to it.
