Jacks getting hung up ( err down)

Hey there,

When I go to retract my rear leveling jacks, the coils on the springs get hung up on the mounting bolts. Not only does this make a loud racket as they retract and each successive coil jumps over the bolt, it usually keeps the jack from retracting all the way up. What I end up having to do is go out and hold the spring away from the bolts as they retract to get them to go up all the way. Kind of defeats the purpose of having jacks when I have to get on my knees and tend to them.

Has anybody else come across this or have an easy solution to fix it? I can think of a few solutions like having the spring mount re-welded further out on the base plate, or having a metal shield made to wrap around the jack to create a smooth surface but I'm hoping there is an easier ( maybe free) fix to the problem.

Mine would just touch the bolts and make noise, not enough to stop them though.

Took the bolts out, and flipped them around. Tough to get at the nuts, but that put just the smooth carriage bolt head on the outside. No more noise.
