    Does anybody know where I can get some u-bolts fast? I bought some 4" front bds spring, and they came with u-bolts, but I am going to be adding a zero rate up front, as well as some shimms that came with the springs, and the u-bolts will not be long enough. I also need some stock length u-bolts for a 14ff. Does anybody know of a place where I can get these and fast? I need them by Friday, so overnight shipping is definitely needed. Thanks.

    Check with ORD I guess? What axle are you using? What size U Bolts? Standard 3"? Pep Boys carries those U Bolts to go with their lift blocks for 3" axles. I needed 2.75" ones so I had to order them from ORD and they said(called today) they might not have them and may have to get them so I'm sitting here with nothing to do on the K5 just waiting till I get them.

    forgot about that. Look in the phone book or ask some shops. I don't have a local spring shop. Nearest one is like 30 minutes away I found today.

    Don't know how close you are to them, but try Galloways 4wd Center.

    They are northeast of Charlotte, and might have what you are looking for.

    Sorry for the delayed response guys. I found some! At a local place called Fleet Pride. Oh, Henry, I would have called you for them, but had no way to winston. I got them anyways. -----Now for tomorrow---I am putting in my 14ff with 4.56's (just relocated the spring perches this week), the echobit shackle flip, doetsch shocks, 4" front bds springs, zero rates, extended stainless brake lines, swaybar disconnect, and new ring and pinion. Whew--I'll be glad when I have that done.
