    Put the impact on them and let it hammer until it can't tighten them any more.

    Check them periodically afterwards, new ones will stretch.

    Wrong answer.

    Here is the proper specs for different size U-bolts.

    5/16" = 15-18 ft. lbs.
    3/8" = 28-32 ft. lbs.
    7/16" = 30-35 ft. lbs.
    1/2" = 65-80 ft. lbs.
    9/16" = 75-90 ft. lbs.
    5/8" = 85-110 ft. lbs
