Anyone know what this is???

Ok sounds dum but what is this part & where does it go? Any pics of your stock solid axle front suspension would be appreciated. I'm going to lower mine but I think some pieced in 2 lifts. My front shackles are like 8" alone. Then I have 8" springs according to the ## from BDS. Thanks guys. Anyone know what this is???-imageuploadedbyag-free1353390782.417816.jpg

So does that go b4 the front shackles? Right now mine jus look like 8" shackles. I think they pieced together my lift (previous owner) so I'm jus gonna put these back on & remove the big blocks under my springs. I have 8" springs front and rear. And opinions?Anyone know what this is???-imageuploadedbyag-free1353417422.718074.jpg

mounts behind/below the front bumper. It is a crash bar to prevent small vehicles from going up under your truck in a collision
