    Just ordered my 6" Lift from Desert Rat and found out the U bolts won't work on the 14 Bolt I have resting under the truck ready to install. Anyone know anyone who sells new rust free u bolts?

    They're 9/16" diameter and 3 3/8" radius. You'll need them 8" long if you have just springs, and if you have lift blocks, add that length to that (say 4" blocks, you'll need 12" u bolts).

    I get all mine made at the local spring shop for $5. A local farm store has some too, I buy some there too.

    I just put a set of 1.5 inch blocks on yesterday along with my springs and they maxed out a 10.5 inch bolt. So you may want to say 9 inches for stock.
