    Call around to some local shops in your area.

    I just got mine last weekend at a shop here in town. The place was called Spring Service and they rearch springs and stuff. It's just a hole in the wall place and I'm guessing just about every town has a place like it. I found it by asking a guy in a ratty old dump truck. I guess the springs sag in those things quite a bit. I got 4 u-bolts for 14ff with 4 inch lift for $20. They made them right then in about 2 min. Good luck finding somewhere.

    Hey man I had some made in Florence. Went to a trucking spring shop. Call your local trucking suppliers/shops and just ask them if they can make ubolts, if not they will know who can locally. Guys in florence charged me about $5 a ubolt and they just needed an old one for diam. and I told them the length I wanted. Made them while I waited. Took about 15mins.
