We did this a couple of years ago. You have to cut some openings in the floor 
pan, replace the rod ends and then close the cutouts by hand lay-up (so you 
have to cut it open again the next time again...).
There is a kind of bulkhead where these rod ends are bolted on, it's all 
straightforward once you have have openend the floor pan. I would keep the 
holes as small as possible, you can always make them larger if you don't have 
sufficient acces.
For replacement, we used high-quality automotive parts, something like this:
While you're at it, check the hoop brackets, which hold the landing gear, for 
cracks - sandblasting and re-painting may be a good idea.

Hi guys
Does anyone have a procedure for the replacement of undercarriage eye bolts, 
specifically the front ones. Is there an official factory procedure given that 
this  is a requirement of the 3000 hour life extension survey?
Mine are bent and worn after some 1750 landings (my guess is that some may not 
have been smooth).
