hi Gene,

Thank you so much for this info. Should we replace all these parts, one at a time to see which is the true culprit? Which would you start with?

On the suspension springs, should those braces at the base be "closed" somehow?

I so appreciate all your help.

You can find more information in one of our previous threads: not spinning

The part on your picture is the suspension spring. It looks not so bad and I don't think it needs any attention so far.
