I have 2" dobsons springs and when the front is near full droop, the right hand spring jutters as i think the spring moves in the bottom or top locator.

its like the spring is too loose?

Is there a clamp you fit to hold them in place or should i look elsewhere for the fix??

I wouldn't worry about it. The springs at full droop will get a big bow in them and cause them to bounce around. Mine does it as well. Or get something like a plastic spring wrap and wrap it round. Will quieten it down

You could retain top and bottom of the springs to the mounts if you wanted. The top should have a rubber insert that sits between the spring and the mount to stop this noise but this means the bottom can still make this noise.

When I put my toy on the hoist it sounds like a piano falling down stairs. dont worry about it unless it REALLY annoys you.

When mine's on the hoist there is about a 50mm+ gap above the springs. They've never dropped out though. They make heaps of noise when they settle too.
