the brushes are what wear out, not neccisarily the springs. sure, if the spring is broken, replace it! ive used a motor for years with the same spring set.

hope it helped!

over time, the spring will loose is tension due to heat and normal motor usage. I have never used a spring dyno...a sonic fiddlestick is all i think is necessary...you mainly want both springs to have the same tension.
For changing springs...its up to you. They are cheap, so replacing them is cake
