    AAAAAhhhh I\'m stuck and havent gotten outta the garage!!

    This is my RANT about my new lift (4" TC lift w/1" rear block) well, after calling just about every auto parts place in the Portland metro area, as well as all the RV places, my lift has come to a screeching halt. I leglected to order the U-bolts from ORD when I got the spring packs and thought to myself, oh thats ok, I can get them anywhere. WRONG! I cannot find 4 8" long 5/8" square U-bolts anywhere. NAPA had some and I was juiced... wife picked them up for me and when I got them opened the box and sure as heck, they were 1/2" bolts. I called Napa and the guys said "no way" I asked him to go measure them. He sets the phone down comes back a little later and starts apologizing. So, here is hoping that 4WPW will have them or maybe Central 4x4... All I know is, this blows! I would use the old ones, but I am replacing a 4" block and the bolts are 12" long and stick down 4" or more below the axle.
    Ok... I think I am done.

    Benz Spring (off Macadam) is the same way - sweet place for U-bolts

    I got mine for $8.50 each - but that was for stock U-bolts - longer ones will cost a little more I'd imagine...
