Clamp Plate and U-Bolts. For 1928-34 Ford stock or repro front crossmember with a transverse spring. Repro front springs usually have fewer leaves than the original, making them thinner. The clamp plate spacer gets welded to the base plate to make up the extra thickness so the clamping action is on the spring leaf, not on the crossmember.
The spacer plate welds to the clamp plate at each end only. Since it is only a spacer, and goes between the clamp plate and the spring, the weld is only holding the 2 pieces together. There isn’t any strength requirement to this weld.
