    I have a 70 blazer and I had done the u bolt reversal to ditch the square u bolts and convert it over to round ones. When I did this I tossed the old parts. Just recently I purchased the EZ ride 6" lift kit which comes with 5 inch blocks for the rear and they sent me the square u bolts with the kit that are 14" tall. I don't have the hardware to convert it back over to that style nor do I know what those pieces are called so I can look for them online. My question is should I convert it back to original? Find some longer u bolts? or ....? I really don't have the money to do anything like get new springs or buy a shackle flip kit now but I need to be able to drive it. What do u think i should do>

    Check with the company that sold you the kit see if they will swap you for the right parts.

    If they wont just get u-bolts made.

    I tried that but they said they only have the u bolts with the round ends in 11 and 3/4 inch length which is too short.

    Send 'em back and buy them from somewhere else. It seems unusual that ORD could not locate some for you, and just left you hanging.
