I could be wrong, I think these are an accessory for Model Ts that clamped to the front axle and the tie rod. As the tie rod moved, the steady-steer would exert force to bring it back to neutral.

How about a photo out of the box so we can see the parts better?

Now I'm going to have to go to the garage and see where these could be attached to do anything.
