    Ive searched and for the life of me I cant find what I need. What size are the u bolts for a front 10 bolt axle with zero rates? I need the overal height and diameter of axle tube, on both housing u-bolt and axle tube u-bolt.

    thanks in advance

    Well for the D60 with a zero rate, there are two that are 5/8 X 3.25 X 9.5, and one that is 5/8 X 4 X 10, and two hex cap bolts that are 5/8 X 2.5. I know that that doesn't help you one bit, sorry. :crazy: At least the info for a D60 is out there now.

    If I recall, you can use the rear 10 bolt ubolts on the front, and they have clearance. I have a new set that I never used because I blew the 10 before I put them on. Next time I'm over there I'll bring them and we'll see if they will bolt up.

    Well the two on the drivers side will work, but I need the big one and smaller one on the passenger side.

    Or I could weld the spring to the zero rate and weld it to the axle. :D

    With the way that center pin sticks, I think you could get away with gluing it. :p:

    Its not a cut and dry question, as spring pack hieghts vary from one to another. Best bet would be to take measurements from your exisiting u-bolts or take the two passenger side u-bolts into a shop and have them order units an inch. or so longer.:D
