Uh oh

I just noticed this today... Is it dangerous to drive like this? Should I remove the shock on the other side as well, so it's even until I can get it fixed?

Wow. Pull the shock or it's going to go thru the bed. I wouldn't drive it like that if it was me.

I am definitely going to pull the shock at the very least before driving it.
