    So one part left for the swap to be done, im short the u bolt top plates that the u bolts tighten against. I've been in a few yards around town and have been chasing bull **** so does anyone have any insight into this? or an ebay auction that is selling them. I was also at the dealership and looked through there books and seen how the u bolts were installed nuts down on some models but the normal way on others, so im still hunting down the part as they told me the part was discontinued. Anyways if anyone has 2 of those u bolt plates around for a 14 bolt roughly 3.5" across hole to hole.

    sierra i already went out to kar bashers and the guy was being a dick quoted me $100 just to take the u bolts off but there was one black 2wd chevy work truck there with 8 lug and a 14 in the rear right on the main pathway in on the south of the path. so maybe ill have to try it another day when that guy isnt being a dick
