    Spacer under \"1\" front leaf spring?

    There appears to be a 1 or 1/2 inch spacer under my drivers side leaf spring. It does not exist on the passenger side. The drivers side also sits up about 1 to 1/2 inches higher than the passenger side.

    Any ideas on why this would be done? Does this have the potential to mess anything up?

    Thanks!!!

    If it's between the spring and the spring pad on the axle, get rid of the spacer. If it's wedged shaped and you dont have the other one, then there is undue stress between the springs. If one side has it, then the other should have it. If one is missing, then gid rid of the other. My stock and 4"lift springs had no spacer. Can't imagine why anyone would put a spacer in unless they were trying to get a saggin spring some extra lift to level the body.
