The torsion spring is optional but recommended. The coil springs will work but eventually you may have to change them as they will stretch. The torsion spring doesn't have that problem. When I did mine the torsion spring was not yet an option. I used the longer of the two springs to start. I have a torsion spring on hand but have been too lazy to take it apart just to install it. So far the coil spring still seems to be doing it's job.
Personally I don't recommend to buy the Studebaker Doo as it is basically a knock off product using Eagle Mikes engineering. Buy the Eagle Mike unit and support a guy that supports us.
