    I was going to order some longer u-bolts, but I want to make sure I state the size properly. How would I go about that? State axle tube diameter and the overall length from bottom of "U" to end of threads? What about cross section of material? Always about 9/16"?

    Steve, I need a price for 4 u-bolts 3"x11" w/ washers and nuts. Thanks,

    all I did when I went to my local spring shop was the diameter of the axle tube and the distance from the bottom side of the axle to the spring plate. They selected the stock, which happened to be the same size as most every ubolt I've seen.

    Basically, dia, length and axle tube size will do it.
    Ubolt kits are $38.00, we should be able to get one close to what you need off the shelf.
