    best place to get u bolts is from a local spring shop. They can bend em up hella quick, the exact size you want, and they are cheap too (at my shop anyway). check the phone book!

    Local 4x4 shop for the u-bolts. I think they were around $25 or so new last time (a month ago). As for the plates a junkyard would be my first stop. The 4x4 junkyards have often have them on hand but you will pay a convinience (sp) fee. Finding a spring shop is a great idea if you have a good one in town. I read somewhere a while back that reusing u-bolts is bad. Dunno if it is true but they are cheap enough for piece of mind.
