Springs or 3 Nylocks for Bed Mount on Bed Slingers?

To save me going and attempting the math have people got first hand experience of part wobbles being eliminated by getting rid of sprung mounted beds in favour of a fully nut and bolted solution?
The risk is the weight of the bed and part being high enough to overcome the spring pre-tention and cause the bed to tilt under rapid accelerations.

it sound like your springs are not strong enough.
you could try replacing them with stronger springs like:
or you could for a quick test replace the springs with wing nuts on the other side.
that way the bed is ridged, but you can still easily adjust it.
i went with the 2nd option for my bed.

There's a better solution- instead of supporting the bed with springs, use springs to hold the bed down onto the levelers. Then just a little more messing around makes the bed kinematic.
