    I cant help with the E-brake(I dont have one), but the U-bolts should be size 5/8" x 3 1/2" x 8". That is assuming youre not using rear blocks. If you are, add the block height to the length of the U-bolts.

    I couldnt find anyone that made the 3 3/8" U-bolts (locally), but the 3 1/2" are commonly made and worked great.
