Is this an OE Leaf Spring Eye Bolt & nut?
« on: October 28, 2011, 05:41:25 PM »
The bolt in question is the bottom bolt and nut?  I replaced my leaf springs about 10 years ago and now just going through some old hardware.  If I remember correctly, I bought the top bolt from a resto shop but they were longer than the originals I had.  Can anyone confirm???  Thanks

The bottom, which is shorter is the correct bolt. The longer one is for 70 model year and the NOS later shackle kits come with that long bolt also.
