    What size u bolts does my 87 1/2 pu have in the back? On summit I saw listings for 9/16 and 5/8, and they were out of stock. I havn't taken them out yet. There aren't any places around here to make them either. So I have to order them. Any other places besides summit I could order from? I'm not real familiar with the vendors for these trucks. Need them about 13" long. I'm replacing them because the drivers side leaf spring broke in half. Is going to 5 leaf packs to 6 leaf packs gonna be a big diff in the ride quality. Rides rough enough as it is. Thanks all.

    Do you have any place that builds/sales trailers around your area? If so check in with them. Local 4x4 shops also might have take offs (I will probably get bashed for offering this one, you are not suppose to reuse u-bolts, but u have to do what you have to do)
