Leaf Spring Eye Bolt

Postby fasteddie » Mon Aug 28, 2017 9:26 am

I have some new leaf spring front bushings and was just outside looking things over. It looks like the bolt on the right side will not come all the way out before hitting the fuel tank. This is a 2 wheel drive. Has anyone done this? I'm hoping there is some wiggle room to angle the bolt down to clear the tank but I don't even want to start messing with it unless I know I can get it out without dropping the tank which I ain't gonna do.

Well, I guess I'll just cut the bolt and put the new one in the opposite way.
