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?

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.
