The ’74-up FSJ front leaf springs have offset centerpins. Make sure you put the shorter side towards the front of the vehicle. Install the rear eye in the spring hanger first, then install the shackle end. Once the bolts are in, you can lower the axle onto the spring and install the new U-bolts. Snug down the bolts, but don’t torque them to spec yet.
