A front spring touches the sway bar bracket

A front spring touches the sway bar bracket
Of course I replaced the insulator bracket but without it

I saw there was this solution,
Can it help ?
If so, how do you install it, does something have a picture of how it is installed?

thanks

That spring retainer is to prevent the spring from popping out when at full extension. This doesn't normally happen on road. If your spring is touching the sway bar bracket, your coil buckets are probably rusted out which is a common thing. The best way to fix this is to cut the old ones off the axle and weld new ones in.

Everything is almost like new to me
No rust !

Bottom line, I am looking for a solution that the spring touches on the sway bar bracket

Can you post a picture of the spring hitting the bracket. That may help with a solution.

A picture would help as something has to be wrong. With a good spring perch and spring isolator, the spring shouldn't be contacting the sway bar mount.

Here are some pictures
Please do not refer to the white pipe I put into the spring
This is in the meantime to avoid noise and contact with the sway bar

What springs are you using? It looks like the bottom coil is not fitting into the isolator correctly. The spring might have to be reclocked.

Claynton.......
The spring sits fine but it moves after extreme spring movement or aggressive pressing of the brakes


I think the lower control arm is a bit short
Maybe estimate how many mm?

Took a picture of mine and your clocking looks the same as mine. Your spring is sitting on top of the front isolator nubs instead of inside the isolator. So either it needs a new isolator or it needs to be placed into the isolator if it isn't deformed from being compressed by the spring.
