The drivers side bolt snapped at some point, but luckily the spring was held in with the broken bolts! Replaced the bolt today, but I do not like the looks of things in terms of support. On the opposite side, similar issue...picture describes it all. Basically, new springs were put in last year by the marina--any thoughts on what causes this, or rectifying it?

If you are taking about the supports at the leading or trailing end of the springs, they are usually shackles (though there are a couple different arrangements. they aren't too hard to find and rarely are they OEM specific.

If you tried to post a picture, it didn't work.

As far as cause, if you are talking about the bolt, it could have been a jolt, corrosion, abuse, or an inferior part to begin with....replacement with high quality parts, installed properly, will usually be the best course of action...
