front leaf springs shifting

The front leaves on my springs are starting to shift on one side due to the fact that the clip on the back side of the springs broke. Can i replace this clip and re align these leaves or is the damage done already? I just finished replacing all the rear leaf spring hangers, shackles, and springs and i really dont want to have to buy new springs for the front if i dont have to. Please, some input would be great because im not sure if these shifting springs are a ticking time bomb or not!!

is it easy enough to just take the old one off the front and replace the clips and hammer the springs back into alignment?

You can definitely just replace the clips, no need to replace the entire spring. Basically take the leaf springs off, grind off the clip and put a new one on.

If you need clips we can bend up replacement ones all the time for our customers.

Your clips are riveted on, correct?
