Safari Gard Springs

My truck "came" with a Safari Gard suspension when I bought it...

I have the truck hoisted and the springs are essentially free floating - there's nothing holding them in place.

Is this a defect of the SG springs?

What are my options to remedy this?

Thanks!

the axles will extend as far as the shocks will allow, you need spring retainers or "cones"

Thats the issue!

Looks like I'm going to have some retainers fabbed.

It's at a very trusty rover shop

I went very far out of my way (75miles+) to take it there!
