    It may be a stupid question, but I want to make sure.

    What is the u-bolt width, inside to inside, for a full floater 14 bolt from an '86 one ton?

    AND

    Of the three u-bolts on a front 60, are the two smaller ones 3.25" inside to inside and the bigger one 4" inside to inside?

    Thanks

    Don't know about the D60, but the u-bolt inside-to-inside measurement (outside diameter of axle tube) for the 14 bolt is 3 3/8"

    Alright I did a little search after the fact and saw that a few times, that the 14 bolt's tube is 3 3/8". Anybody on the 60 specs?

    Also, where is a good place to get out of the ordinary sized u bolts?

    I just measured my D60 ubolts. the big one measures 4.125 or 4 and 1/8 inch, the drivers side ubolts measure 3.125 or 3 and 1/8 inches. Both are inside measurements. I'd guess ORD could get these for you if there is no spring shop local to you.
