some people have changed springs to progressive on the rear, requiring the dis-assembly of the top portion. It sounds to me like part of the top half came apart? I have rebuilt mine, (a couple years ago), and just put it back together without that bumper, I think. There are some pictorial writeups if you do a search.
Welcome to this forum, it's a lot of fun!
