Leaf Spring Alignment Clamp is what that broken piece on the leaf springs is called,
if they are replacing just the one leaf spring & its a new part, you will likely notice that the side with the new spring will sit higher & if its too much higher, you will have to replace the sagging spring or get it re-arced, it is the heating of the old leaf spring & then they make the springs arc go back to stock

we have a shop here that i have used to rearc my springs on a '56 chevy pickup
