    Off the top of your head, what is the u-bolt size for a 12 bolt rear axle.

    NAPA wants an ID size.

    Umm, are we on the same page? Are you talking u-bolt to bolt the axle to the springs or u-joint for the driveshaft?

    I thought he meant to say u-joint . I didn't know NAPA sold u-bolts . We always used used ones , went to Spectrac ( local spring and RV shop ) , or called a 4x4 vendor .

    According to my search for U-bolts via Trailmaster. A u-bolt for 0 to 4" lift

    Inside width is 3" - 3.625"

    Inside length is 8" - 10"

    I'll try and confirm that tomorrow when I can see something.

    We can also get them made on the spot here in Greeley. IIRC when we made them for Nick it was $9ea. Plus we have the old ones in the yard they can use for "templates."
