Nth Degree Spring Woes

Hello, I am doing a spring relocation on my tj. I am using Nth Degree 4.5 coils which have a bigger diameter "tail" than stock springs. So right now the spring moves all over the place due to the bumpstop bucket being smaller than the spring opening. My plan was to take a hockey puck, bore out the center of it then just slide the puck over the bucket so its snug. Kinda like a budget boost.

My other option is to just turn the spring upside down as the tail end on the bottom is about the same size as stock. But the problem I find with this is with the diameter being bigger it will move around on the bottom too. I experienced this the first time I installed the springs and had them this way. Lets just say I had to keep lifting my jeep on the trail to keep em from falling off.

I just dont like the spring being able to move around as much as it does.

I am also sure with this relocation of the spring to being straight up and down will help things as well.

Anyways thanks for reading please let me know what you think.

I have the shorter AEV springs with AEV's spring relocation brackets and don't really have any problems. The spring just sits there and doesn't really move around. I too was concerned with it moving around on the bottom, but like I said, it doesn't really move around.

A quote from my wife: "I don't even want to know how much it cost, I'm not in the mood to be that pissed off today."

Let me know if that hockey puck thing works out. I saw one guy put those screw in retainers upside down (on the upper coil bucket) which obviously wasn't the ideal solution, he later switched to limiting straps.

They are right side up. I have my factory sway bar in the back and have never had any issues. I guess if you have none or maybe even an Anti-rock, it may allow more flex and unseat one??

Like I said, I don't have any problems.
