Leaf Spring and Engine Start problem

My driverside leaf spring is not sitting right the shackle end is fine but the rear is not tight around the bushing. Their is about a 1.5" to 2" gap. Now the starting problem is the relay inside the box in front of the battery that is for the starter. The relay is not drawing over when you turn the key. I replaced the relay and it still does it.

cant help with the leaf spring,but for the relay you may want to check the wires going to it make sure they are fairly clean,try taking a volt meter to it for power if you cant check your ignition fuse and others in your fuse block.You could try to jump the starter but if you never done that before dont find some one to check it out for you.

I took the top off the relay and used a screw drive to push it over with the key in run position it starts everytime. The ignition fuse under the dash is good. Could the key switch in the steering column be bad? It won't start with the remote starter either.
