    axle swap ?'si plan do do the axle swap and lift this weekend, but when i ordered my lift i didnt know i was going 3/4 ton, so the ubolts are not the correct size.

    there is a place near my house that will make the u bolts, so do i have them make them the same length as the ones i got for the 4" lift, with the right width?

    also, i dod need new spring plates right? the ones that the u bolts bolt to? not sure if the ones on there now will fit right

    thanks

    Yes you need new springplates with wider spaced holes . If in doubt get the u-bolts a little longer than you think you need and cut them afterwards :k5: :k5:
