    Nope they are a different length and the pin is in a different location. You could prolly make them fit but if you are going to go through the trouble to do that just put 52s or 56s on.

    Check out the seller "scratch and dent" on Ebay. That's Superlift's way of selling off overstock, discontinued, etc. stuff. I just picked up a brand new set of front U-bolts with nylock nuts for $8. :cool1:
