Icon8 Spring???

Yes it was nice today. But of course my day got wrecked.

My question and my problem is this. When they made the 2001 Ford Ranger 3L V6. Did they not put springs around the shocks on the front end?
There is the top circle were a spring would touch. Zero spring there. What there is there is a shock in the center missing spring. Thats it. Both front tires are this way.

Is this the way it should be? Or am I screwed?

So pissed off I don't want to sit down

Sounds like you have torsion bars for springs. That's ok

Really? Ok. Thank you. I thought I had a death trap on my hands. I will use that as I go forward from here. I'm not afraid to get behind the wheel anymore. Thank you for scaring that away.
