SD is right in that you can just replace the t-bolt and toggle for a left hand threaded eye and a double jaw toggle. This doesn't change the overall length of the headstay the way adding a eye jaw toggle would.

The system is made to accommodate a turnbuckle but is often installed without one.
If you are replacing the headstay,(recommended) you can have it made either way.
