I've posted a video showing the noise produced by the springs, along with my (stealthier) method to eliminate it, in this instructable: https://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.

I was trying to figure out what "spring noise" even was, because I, nor anyone I know, has ever had a problem with it.
