the only Shimano barcons I ever owned were spring-loaded with a flat coil spring (like a clockspring). If you have one without a spring it could be a variant or have a broken spring...if it will work as "friction only" without the spring, use it for the front I guess.
I never cared much for these with spring or no, the SunTours with ratchet worked (and are still working) much better.
