The springs as I cut them can not "fall out".
They sit way up inside a pretty deep well and with the shocks attached (limiting down travel of the rear axle
), they do not get loose even when the axle hangs like if you "caught some air" on a fast hill crest. They are still long enough and stay tight enough so that you can't pull them out .... nor will they fall out.
But to anyone with lingering doubts that might interfear with their own enjoyment .... I'll be the first to say "don't do it"
