Front suspension spring retainer

I was upgrading my suspension to OME tonight and there was only a spring retainer clamp on my front left spring ONLY. When I dropped the axle the front right spring basically dropped right out. I have a 2000 TJ Sport. Why would it only be on one spring? The car was all stock. Why only one?

yeah, pretty funny. I was putting my new springs in up front this morning and was wondering wtf was going on. I thought it just fell off until I talked to a buddy at work today that enlightened me on it being on the dr side only.
