What do I do if a constant support is bottomed out?

There are two possible situations in which the constant would bottom out. One being the load is larger than anticipated and the other being that the amount of travel exceeds the total travel rating for that particular constant. Under the first category, one would be able to increase the load by 10% if the conditions warranted. Under the second category, replacement of the constant support would be required.
