My guess would be the clean spot on the shock, second pic.

they need to get a bump stop in there before they bottom out and damage all that good work they invested into.

Looks like it’s supported by the frame not the axle tube so I don’t think that’s the amount it gives. They sell these things at the parts store as lift kits.

True, it was supported by the frame.

 

So they sell this stuff commercially?

That is a special kind of special. I'm guessing they probably spentt more than a pair of lift springs would have cost.

Yes, but I've never heard of or seen them sold as lift kits. Both types of those inserts have been sold for years as cheap ways to "restore" sagging coil springs. I can remember seeing that &^$%* in the old J.C. Whitney catalog when I was still in high school.
