Turns out i cant put any wires or rope through the damper spring. Any alternative??

I just use some common or garden linear slide potentiometers, big enough to give 100mm of travel. I'm not sure why you would want to put the string through a suspension spring, although you could if you wanted. All you need to do it tie the string to the moving part you want to measure and mount the potentiometer on the part you want to measure the movement relative to. If you can't figure out how to tie a bit of string between your suspension and your chassis them frankly you ain't trying!
