anyone recognize this bolt?

I got this in a box of parts from the guy I bought my factory suspension off of. I dont know what it is for. Apparently it came off when his lift went on?

What purpose does the "cam" on the bolt serve? Just curious as my shocks are on now. Shop must have used their own bolts.

you dont need a wrench to put bolt back in, when reinstalling the shock you can hold that cam with your fingers to get the bolt to start threading on the nut, once it started you can can hit the bolt with an impact gun because that cam catches on the frame and keeps the nut from spinning. hope i did not confuse you!

I just put on a lift kit on my truck and that looks like one of the bolts that holds on the rear leaf springs.

no you didnt confuse me. Thats the first thing I thought of when I looked at it. I then thought of where in the heck it could have went where that style bolt would be used. The shock mount never even crossed my mind. I was looking all over trying to figure it out.
