    Are there any good places to order custom size u-bolts from? I don't need anything crazy but regular lift kit hardware is to short. I thought I could get some from a local shop that has made u-bolts for me before but they either can't do it or aren't interested.

    I got mine local here in Atlanta (Marietta, accually) it's too far to drive, but they might ship. I can't find the # right now but if you want it, let me know. You can also buy them from Rancho or Pro-Comp. You're prob too far from Rosser for a drive but I know they ship if you want the name brand ones.

    Ditto. Local spring shop nearby, cost me $30 bones. Bring them a sample (for size and thread) and tell them the new length. Presto, new u-bolts! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
