    you already said spring plates... I think you will be ok with the u-bolts for the rear, but you will need all new hardware for the front?

    What are you putting the 1-ton goodies under?

    info requested

    dont forget the front plates on top of the springs. might need a smaller master cylinder for brakes possibly. i would get new ubolts for the front and rear NEVER had good luck reusing them all most lost front axle once. 5 week old uolts lossened up to put shims in then re tourqed and whent on poker run front all most fell out VARY BAD ride.

    I can see no reason to change the master cylinder. What... to have less brakes if anything?
