nut and bolt size (for leaf spring)

Anyone know what size bolt and nut goes through the leaf spring and frame?

The ones for the frame-to-shackle and the shackle-to-spring are 1/2" x 4.5" fine (20) thread. I used Grade 8 course thread (13) when I replaced since it was all I could find.

Main eye bolts are 9/16", according to this write-up.

They are. I didn't know these were the ones he was looking for.

Thanks for the verification!

I've had plenty of them out before, but I never had a reason to replace, or measure them so I was going on "what I found online" there. Good to know that it's accurate!

Well just looked at it a bit more and the bolt is fine (thought it was messed up but its not) so now I just have to figure out what sized nut (preferably without taking the bolt out).

I guess it would just be a 9/16 course thread bolt? Defiantly not a fine thread

It's a 9/16" bolt, this much I know. I'm not sure what the original was, since I hacked mine off when I installed the lift. I would have to guess it was a course thread, but just to make sure grab one of each.

Sorry I can't help more...

Fine thread would be 9/16-18, Course would be 9/16-12. The shackle bolts would be 1/2-20. All my bolts are fine thread.

It is a standard course thread. I replaced two main eye bolts when I did my lift.

Come to think of it my main eye bolts are course thread. The shackles are fine thread.
