leaf spring rubbing frame rail

So the drivers side rear leaf pack and the U bolts are rubbing the frame. What could be the cause of this? How bad is this problem?

Those pictures are itty bitty and don't get larger if you click on them.

Have you inspected the shackle area (I think that's the shackle at the left side of pic #2) to see if everything is aligned correctly there?

Did you put the springs on upside down?

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

Look for obvious things like broken parts or missing bushings. Check that the hardware (bolts) is tight. No internet guesswork is going to take the place of actually looking at it first.

Is that the same side you had pulled apart for the bent bolt?
Also , how much clearance do you have on the other side.

So what do you see that's different from the side that doesn't rub? There should be clues when comparing the two sides.
