    Ordered some ORD zero rates and U-Bolts from ORD to be used with zero rates in the front with a 4 inch spring. I am going to go with a 6 inch spring in the front instead of the 4 + zero rate. Can I use the same U-bolts I ordered? Thanks

    I don't see why you couldn't. The ubolts you have should be long enough to handle a 6" spring if they will handle a 4" and a 1" zero rate. Measure them if you are not sure. Measure the thickness of the axle tube, spring perch, spring pack, and top plate. If you have 1" or more extra on the ubolt you will be fine.

    That's the answer for you.
    The TCI springs are not too much thicker in the 6" version compared to the 4".
