Retainer? Can you post a picture?

I will have to take one tomorrow. It is a metal hook that keeps the top coil from becoming unseated at full droop. Maybe it is needed for these springs because they are 1.5" drop? I'm tempted to just take them off. I'm not planning on catching air anytime soon.

This was an old pic. I have since gone to coil-overs.
