Coil springs

The coil springs on my ranger have what look like lug nuts in between the coils causing them to bow one way. What are they for and how do I remove them?

Are the items in between the coils rings?

Could they be there to make the vehicle sit higher?

If so then you would need to jack up the frame and let wheel suspension hang down as far as possible then try to remove them.

But..............be aware that someone probably raised the back suspension as well so vehicle sat level, if you remove the front "spacers" then vehicle won't sit level until you remove rear lifts, what those are I wouldn't know.
