Or glue the ends of the springs to the seats on either end. Shock will still work, but springs will keep it from coming apart at full extension.

To build them where they won't fall apart you need three sizes of tubing that all fit inside each other. First, take the biggest and smallest tubes and decided how long your part needs to be. Once that is found you take the middle size tube and cut two thin rings out of it. One ring goes at the top of the small tube and the other goes at the bottom of the big tube, super glue them in so they can't come out. Now when everything is dry you can drop the small tube through the top of the big tube and the rings won't allow the small tube to fall out. Add your spring and complete as normal.
Sounds simple and I can just mod it off my basic design. My try that tonight.
