Wierd thing spring

2 of these fell out of my coil spring today when I was working on the suspension. I assume they are some aftermarket adjuster? Never seen anything like them.

Exactly. Old school way of lifting the suspension some.

I guess that means I should probably order new springs.

Agreed! New springs are the way to go. I had air shocks on my Supreme back in high school and I had no idea how rough they made the ride until I installed new rear springs. Wow, what a difference - the rear of the car was the same height but it rode so much smoother with the new springs and regular shocks.
