    If I get this thing (4.11 open) where do I get and how much should I expect to pay for these items? I know the plates are gonna be $$$.

    Wes (thatk30guy) had a set of new spring plates for sale and might still have them. The U-bolts ORD sells and that is where I got mine and the U-bolt kit included the 2 bolts for the inside of the passenger side.

    Your bio said you were a fabricator. Why don't you make your own plates. They are simply flat plates with four holes in them, basically. You could pick out whatever type and thickness of metal you wanted to use and buy the bolts like the previous post said?

    Cool, thanks. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of $$ was involved for the u-bolts?

    I don't remember the exact price but I think it was 30 something for them.

    My bio says nothing of being a fabricator all though I did spend several years working with a proffesional metal sculptor. Good idea though. I guess there would actually be 5 holes, one for the center pin.

    There should be an indentation for the center pin, NOT a hole.

    Sorry, that was Wayne's bio. But for 30$, it would probably be more time effective to just buy them?

    Also you will need a threaded hole on the correct (need to look at another set to get the correct side) side of each for the sway bar bolt (that is only if you want to run a sway bar).
