Smile 3 link question

Hi I plan on buying the Safari Gard 3 link in a few weeks. However I have a question for those that are running the 3link. What are some of the methods for keeping the front spring in place. I know that the spring can't come out because the shock goes through the spring but what some ways of keeping the front springs in place for when the suspension articulates. I have Rovertym 3" springs with EE isolators top and bottom.

Thank you!

BTW the vehicle is a 1996 Discovery

You sure they'll be selling them in a few weeks. Last I heard from Mary that the 3 link was being re-engineered. That was for the Defender. Not sure if they were even working on it for the Discovery yet.

apparently mary is no longer with them and they are under new management... so there is a chance of actually getting some parts.

Ahh I was under the impression that the company was taken over by someone else.. that being said, I'm still waiting to see if my friends get their parts as they were told they were going to... until then, I have personally not seen anything from the new company... hopefully that changes, and SG can thrive again.

They were taken over/bought out. Safari Gard still owes my friend $1000 for over 2 years ago. He was even a distributor for them. Not sure if he'll ever see it.... of course Mary says the new owner wants to make things right, so who knows?

Over the years past Scott (Sterling Motors) has taken quite the beatings on Pirate.

Naw, more like the typical pirate ribbing, some downright unfair, some justified. Did he buy SG?

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.
