'73 CJ Front Leaf Spring Centering Pin
I'm replacing the suspension on my '73 CJ5 and have come across a situation with the front leaf springs. The springs have a centering pin on them however the pad on the bottom of the front axle has no hole for the pin. Is there something missing that goes between the springs and the axle pad? I haven't been able to see anything in the original manual on this. I've included a photo.
There should be a hole, I have not seen a Jeep spring mount that did not have one. You need to take a wire brush/wheel to the spring perch and clean it up. Most likely the one from the old spring rusted off and is still in the perch. Was there a centering pin on the spring you removed?
