I called fabtech, but guy said he'll have to get with engineering to see if he can get an answer

update:

guy at fabtech called back, he said that the engineers looked it up, and going off of some REALLY old drawings, the eye is about 1 7/16". but it's really old, and the sprigns are made by someone else and bushings by another company, soo....who knows if this is correct.

why do you need the measurements...gotta replace a bushing or something? or are you looking into the MORE shackles?

32" BF M/T's with cragar rims
5" BDS springs, MORE greasable shackles, XJ driveshaft, AA SYE kit, RE SS brake lines. Bilstein 5150's, 255/70 valving all around, 14" travel in front, 10" in rear.

ummm i *think* one and a half, i can measure for you tonight if you'd like. I remember taking the measurements of the my springs when i got them, and they were 1.5" inside diameter for the eye hole, and the bushing fits snuggly.
