Curt - The hanger rods originally were just rods that were threaded on both ends.

Gary I don't understand your question. If your failure resulted in the spring end and the brake backing plate being ground down then the anger bolt didn't fail, the car lost a wheel.

Regardless you should have the safety lops installed just in case.

Regarding the installation of the safety hoops my Cord which is an early production car had the holes drilled through the suspension arms. When the hoops were fitted the sides of the suspension arms were pulled in a bit consequently water could get into the suspension arms . During the current restoration a lot of rust was removed from inside the arms before the holes were drilled out and sleeved with suitable pipe. As well as restore the car I am doing what I can to conserve it.

Thanks Jim. My car has the spring safety loops. They are bent but easy to copy if I need to. Here are the pics of what my front spring and suspension bolt and nut looked like after it ground down on the road.I also included pics comparing the old to the new.
