If there is a spacer above the rebound spring, this is there to limit how far out the rod comes, thus limiting the extended length of the fork.

Be careful not to damage the split piston ring on the piston at the bottom of the rod.
Ok fantastic info there! Thanks I just finished pulling the cartridge out of one and had to stop for a while. When I get back to it I'll pull it apart like you said and take a look. Thanks again!
