Suspension Question

I have a '74 CJ5. I need to change out my spring bushings and have come across a problem. On the front springs the bolts on the rear are the correct size as the replacements, but on the front where the shackles are the bolts are huge like there is no bushing in there and its just the bolt. Is that a normal thing that people do?

I would say someone took an easy way out before you got the jeep. Just order some bushings.

And replace the bolts. My buddy is worried that the shackle got drilled out.
