What is the front main eye
On the front suspension of your 4x4 truck there are two points where the leaf spring connects to the frame. The fixed point, main eye (front of the spring, closest to bumper) and the shackle point, rear eye. Our front eye replacement bracket is a heavy duty version designed to directly replace your stock unit. It is also great for doing 4x4 conversions.

What are the benefits of installing Hogback Fab's front main eye?
The stock main eye brackets have been on these trucks for some 50+ years and are typically pretty beat. It is very common to find cracks and ovaling of mounting locations. That is where our main eye hanger comes in, it is a much heavier duty version of the stock unit and will bolt into the stock holes in your frame. Our front main eye even comes with a new bracket for your body mount making it a solid strong one piece design.  
*Same as original width, no spacers needed!!

How easy is it to install the front main eye?
Very easy!
  1. Safely lift/jack truck up and put on jack stands. Make sure to use proper safety gear and equip
  2. Locate the front main eye hanger and remove leaf spring from it.
  3. Remove rivets holding shackle hanger on frame. This can be done super fast with an air chisel. Another method is using a cutoff wheel to cut an in the rivet. Then take a hand chisel to the heads to remove them.
  4. Bolt in new main eye hanger torque bolts to 60 FT/LBS
  5. Bolt leaf spring back into new main eye hanger
  6. After driving 100 miles make sure to re-torque bolts

Note for 2x4 to 4x4 conversions: Remove stock core support/body mount hanger. Line up new main eye hanger where stock body mount hanger was. Mark/drill new holes. Assembly is same as above from there. The mounting holes will be close but will not line up because of frame height differences in the 2wd and 4wd.

Note: Front bumper brackets may need to be modified, but its worth it for a much stronger hanger!
