    Get spring plates at a wrecking yard. They are the same as the ones for a 14bSF.

    Most spring shops can bend up u-bolts any size you want. If you're a cheap bastard like me you can use some from a mid/late 90's E250/350. [​IMG]

    are you sure you need a 1310 to 1350 ujoint?
    this was what i was told and wasn't correct for my 89

    i needed a s44 to 1350 which is neapco part# 2-1153
    there is also the 1330 to 1350 which is neapco part# 2-3050
    and the 1310 to 1350 is neapco part # 3-3140

    Thanks for the part #'s I'll check which one I need before I buy.None of the yards have 14 bolt axles around here.Can you buy the plates new?
