If you find a longer spring, let us know the manufacturer and part number!

Possibly these Front Dislocation Cones for Defender, Discovery 1 and Range Rover Classic models

Just looking at the scale (width of ring compared with the diameter) they mat be the top mount. I'm going to contact them and see if I hear back.

Problem being none of the parts listings anywhere specify top or bottom mount, tough to tell just by looking at the pages.
Do you have access to a welder, or do you know anyone that has some fabrication skills? I ask because you could modify the ones you have pretty easily by cutting off the existing cone then simply removing a section out of the cone, narrow the circle (or simply fab up a new cone piece to fit), then weld it back onto the base.
