Spring color isn't ALWAYS consistent , best to use the spring manufacturers chart to determine the correct spring rate , ALWAYS replace the springs in pairs [both sides] , opener gear sets are available online for less than $20 , takes about an hour to replace them . Most sears openers are liftmaster [chamberlain] , very common part .
