Dissecting the Telescoping Posts I'm trying to figure out how it works along with the spring and what parts I really need to replace? I know for sure one of the images you'll see the PO had hacked the metal that slips into the roof bracket. Also, I didn't have sides to the roof so I can't see in other pictures how the 1/2" sides cradle on the lip just outside that post? Does that make sense? How does the spring actually work with the posts? You'll see I have the springs still and I know the cable has broken so I bought one ready to install.
