buy helper springs.  coleman (circle track vendor) sells them.  these
are wimpy flat-wound springs that go between the spring and the
collar.  normally they're mashed flat, but when the suspension
spring fully extends, they keep some pressure on the collar so it
doesn't change adjustment.

don't like tethers too much.  they limit your suspension travel
and they do it abruptly.
