I think it's a dampener. I've seen several different ones on Pintos to try to eliminate noise & vibration
'73 Sedan (I'll get to it)
'76 Wagon driver
'80 hatch(Restoring to be my son's 1st car)~Callisto
'71 half hatch (bucket list Pinto)~Ghost
'72 sedan 5.0/T5~Lemon Squeeze

Clamp /damper.............it clamps the leaves together. Used on the outside ends.
