Ideas for Coil Spring Retainers

Hey I am looking for some coil spring retainers. Was wondering if anyone might have any idea where I could get some. Have searched the net with no luck so far. Problem that I am having is when I lift the truck, my front coil spring pops out on the right side. Was hoping that someone knew where I could find some retainers to attached to the top to hold the spring in place.

Thanks

make a piece of metal strap on the bottom that goes over the spring. thats what my buddy in his jeep did cuz at full flex he would lose a coil.

Sounds like you need to make a limit strap mount and run limit straps. This way the strap will be tight and limit the max amount of downward travel, preventing enough travel to let the spring pop out.
