    The 14 bolt I just bought didn't have the u-bolt anchor plates.
    I called the dealer, they show 2 different sizes. 4.72 and 4.12 from center to center of the holes. Any idea how to tell which one I need?

    I am willing to bet one is for the SF and one is for the FF. I have some at home, but would not be able to get the measurements untill tonight so hopefully someone else here might be able to help. But just guessing, I would say the larger of the two would go with the 14FF and the smaller with the 14SF. But it's just a guess.

    See Ya,
    Keith

    HI,
    I'm not sure wich one is wich but I do know that the SF and FF 14 bolts have the same size tube. I aslow have a DANA 70 dually from a GM and it's tubes are much bigger than my 14 bolts' tubes. So those might the bigger size that the dealer has listed.
    Hope this helps alittle

    Well, hers what Im thinking. I think the tubes are like 3 5/8's and the u-bolts are close to 1/2. So I'd take 1/2 adn add this to the 3 5/8. thus a 4 1/8 inch. 4 1/8 comes out metric to 4.125.
    So I think I'll go with the 4.12

    But I just came across another 14 FF with the 4.56 I want and it comes with the plates. So I may be having a 14 ff for sale.

    If you are talking about the spring plates, I just measured the 2 sets I have and both are 4.12.
