Get your cloth and wrap it around all of the springs so they wont ring. The screw driver comes in handy for shoving the cloth in tiny spaces. After your done all you have to do is put the cover back on and your ready to go!

I've posted a video showing the noise produced by the springs, along with my (stealthier) method to eliminate it, in this instructable: http://www.instructables.com/id/No-more-guitar-spring-noise/

I used this exact method, but now I prefer the one I posted because it is invisible. Both work well, tough, so it's a matter of taste.

then why the hell are you looking at an instructable on how to eliminate spring noise?
I was trying to figure out what "spring noise" even was, because I, nor anyone I know, has ever had a problem with it.
