Sounds like you lose all pressure on the spring when your LF is at full sag.

You could try screwing in on your jack bolt. If not, how do you adjust your springs. Our car still has enuf pressure to hold the spring in place at full sag.

If all else fails you could go to a clip that hold the spring in place.

I have the same combo on my new chassis, metric stub nova lowers and pinto spindles. What i do to help the spring from turning and getting out of position is to weld a piece of quarter inch rod about 2 inches long to the pig tail end of the spring and drill a hole for it to go thru the lower control arm.

Yes i suppose a nut welded on the end and use threaded rod be better for removal when storing.

I have tryed a few different makes of springs and prefer AFCO springs over the rest of them.

Simply drill a hole in the spring plate. Take a zip tie and attach it to the spring plate and around the spring. If it is doing it in the bucket of the lower A, then follow the same practice. Dirt LM guys zip their springs to the adusters all the time.
