    Okay... Tomorrow is the day of the lift kit (FINALLY) as soon as Jay e-mails me with what time he wants to meet... But, I need to buy some longer U-Bolts because of the add-a-leaf on the back...

    How do I determine what size U-Bolts I should get? Should I just go out and measure the length of the ones I have now and add 2" to that, since it's a 2" lift? /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I'd post this in the tech forum for starters.

    Here's a link to a local guy I used to make U-bolts for me, there's a calculator for making them here. U bolt measurement page

    and cut to length?

    No, cause the longest you can get might not have the thread coverage you would need.
