Default Coil spring question wit pic

I just put my spacers in yesterday. After I did, I started to notice a clunking noise when I'd hit the brakes. I couldn't find what it was, but then I finally noticed the drivers side coil spring wasn't setting on the spacer as smoothly as the passenger side. I'm pretty sure the noise was the spring going down onto the spacer when I hit the brake, then back up when I'd let off. I get 10 hours a month to use the shop I work at for personal matters, and I'm all out of time for this month. Would it cause any harm being like this? I've driven the hell out of it to make sure the spring wouldn't pop out, and after the hell I put it through, I'm POSITIVE it isn't coming out of there.

did you use those stupid stud extensions? it could have bent or broke. also i have installed alot of those and never did those coil blocks fit right in the coil i always had to grind away at them to get the coil to seat correctly because that same one is used for f-150 and that lip is to damn large
