Hi,

I've never tried that, I'm not sure you can combine position constraints and spring...

You can try to apply first the position constraint to the layer, and then a list to the position property. If it works as it should, the position constraint expression will be transferred to the first value of the list and should still be working.
You can then add the spring to the second value of the list.

If it doesn't work properly, I would advise to use parenting, you can have the constraint on a null, and the spring on a child for example, this should work better.

Be careful that with the current expression engine in After Effects, the spring can be a bit heavy, and it's sometimes quickier to animate overshot manually, especially with the new FK controls in Duik Bassel
