Jeep Crand Cherokee With Coil Spring Out

We could not quite get the Jeep to flex enough to get the coil back in place, and despite bringing everything but the kitchen sink on our trip, we did not have a Hi-Lift. Instead, we backed up a touch and put a flat rock in front of the rear tire. We then drove up on the rock and the Jeep was flexed enough that were able to reseat the coil. Once the coil was back in place, we re-attached the sway bar. This limited the flex and kept the springs from falling out. Once you get home, you will need to address the problem and add a lower coil retaining clip, limiting strap, or add an upper stem to the suspension so the spring won’t fall out on the trail next time.
