Re: Will this work?

Will it increase friction if bolts are tighten too much? Does it make sense to use a spring under a through bolt?

Yes, increasing through bolt tension will increase friction. Yes, it makes sense to use a spring under a through bolt with a locknut - this will allow a little compliance with temperature related changes and asperities.
