To be honest... I'm not sure. I think it's purpose was to distribute weight sort of like a sway bar.
So if, for some reason, your off-roading and one tire was riding high it would transfer down pressure on the opposite tire to provide traction, that's a guess after staring at it for too long.
But I know that the more expensive models this spring was replaced with a hydropnematic 'compensating spring' to adjust ride height. It's a sweet piece, rides awesome for the year.
But it's coming out to make room for a 9".

It does look a bit like a Mitsubishi Starion, or Chrysler Conquest.

Does the rear axle fold there in the middle? The spring looks like it is simply going from axle tube to axle tube. That would mean the only way it could work is if there was a U joint there and the axle housing folds.

Yes. It hinges in the middle.
The top-center of diff housing is fixed to the chassis to prevent vertical or horizontal movement but allows the LH tube, part of the diff housing, to swing.
The tubes swing, sort of like a swing axle bug!
There is one u-joint in the axle assembly. Located in the RH tube right off the hanger bearing. Axle length is compensated by a roller bearing slip joint.
This, RH, tube is hinged off the bottom of the diff housing oil sealed in with a rubber bellow. Whew.....
I hope that makes sense.

Another pretty common tactic is described here: new 1940 chev pickup project

If I don't know, I don't play.

You guys go ahead. I had to go to Tacoma for a judging assignment Sunday. Tomorrow I'm going to the LaMay Museum. I'm going to leave this thread for a while before I say things I shouldn't. Some people jump to conclusions to easily and other can just KMA.

When I lived in Vancouver Harold Lemay invited our car club up to see his collection. Of course that was before he died and the museum was created. Not only did he have some really neat stuff but he was a very nice man and it was a pleasure to spend the afternoon with him.
