Re: Factory Leaf Spring Bolt Size

You could do that, yes. Bear in mind 9/16 is 0.29mm larger than 14 so you may have to run a 9/16 drill through the bushing sleeves to clean them out and/or remove a little metal before the bolt will fit through if they were pretty tight on tolerances.

The weld nuts in the frame for the leaf eye and shackle are M14x2.0 and more trouble than they're worth to replace, but you can do whatever you want at the shackle to leafspring connection and front lower control arm mounts, which use the same bolts.
