What is this spring???

This is in front of the driver's side rear wheel. I hear a loud pop while driving, and pulled over to see this hanging off. (2.3L 5 speed)

By the looks of it, it is your return spring for your E-brake.

I Just checked on my truck and it is your return spring for your E-brake.it does not look like it is broken so you should be able to clip it back on.

ok nevermind, I figured it out. Although I don't really understand what the spring is there for. The brake works and releases just the same with or without it.

make sure everything else looks right, maybe pull the drums off the back and take a look..
depends on how loud it really was.
