Re: spring eye holes
I have a yj spring out in the shop; the shackle end is 1 1/4" ID and the main eye is 1 1/2" ID.
I don't see a problem with running a larger eye. I am currently running waggonneer springs in a SOA configuration on my CJ. I flipped the fronts end for end to gain a couple inches of wheelbase, which put the large eye up front; I don't know what it measures, but it is pretty close to 2", and it works fine.
Well, except for bending both main leaves on the shakedown run [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]; I think that is a function of shcakle angle and spring rebound, though.
