i believe hey come from the factory with the nut side out...or bolt going through the leaf spring from the inside out...i BELIEVE they do this because it is EXTREMELY hard/IMPOSSIBLE to remove the bolt without cutting it out or removing parts of the radiator shroud, cover, etc...think it was a safety deal so that even if the nut vibrated loose and fell off...the bolt would still stay in keeping you from a horrific accident....i could be completely wrong but thats what me and a few buddies have came up with.
found this problem when installing my lift. I had to cut mine out and then when installing new ones i put them on from the outside in or nut side on the inside, and then coated the bolt threads with a ton of locktite to the point to where i will probably have to cut them out again to remove them haha.
