I am in the process of recommissioning my old trailer and notice the band that is on the front part of the leaf spring is broken. Do I need to get this replaced and what function does it serve?

I've made them with flat stock bent unto a u and drilled holes at the ends and tightened with a bolt that ends up looking somwhat like a d link. You definatly need that band. If your leafs move they don't help each other support the load and if a leaf rubs on your tire it'll wear the side wall and blow out
