The spring may have broke inside. Which could be why it's not as "springy" as before.

Luxes shot great long before springs came along. If it's still shooting great, don't change a thing

Be warned: the spring is damn near impossible to get out with regular allen keys because of how long it is.

I went to three bike shops and two hardware stores to try and find a wrench long enough and could not find one. I ended up getting a guy to custom make a tool with my allen key.

Also, I meant to post this before: Call DLX before you go and buy a spring from a 3rd party. When I called they were very helpful and mailed me a new spring, their CS is awesome even if installing their spring is a pain in the rear.
