    Make some wraps to go around the springs. The only drawback with this set up is that it will limit your spring compression and may not be the best fix if you are a "flexer". If you are using it for flexing, you may need to take the springs to a spring shop and have them make some new clamps for them. Make sure you tell them you want the sleeve and bolt type, not the type of clamp where they just wrap it around the springs.
