What did I break and where can I get it?

I would post this in tech section but if I need it then I need it now/local. I just hopped under the rig to re-torque all bolts installed during the lift and found this:







It came from the leaf spring on passenger side, and appears to be a clamp. I have the Rough Country 6.5 inch full leafs. Would 4wheelparts local have it? I am using the rig to tow on Thursday (3000lbs).

you can drive still, no problem. its not a huge deal to have them. just get them when you can. i would think any auto parts store would have a simple leaf clamp though
