    4wd shops around here have them, if I can't find what I need there I get some nuts and bolts at McLendons....

    I just went through this last week. I just used some 3/8 grade 8 bolts and worked great.

    bolts

    Any NAPA auto parts store has them. They came long, had to cut them off after I had everything bolted up.

    spring shop dude. Over on SE Stark in portland, between 9th and 10th I believe. I've bought custom u-bolts and center pins from them before. One time when I was getting u-bolts, they tossed in some center pins for free.

    Yep, I'll get them at either Benz spring, or Oregon Spring this Fiday when I get new u-bolts made. Or, I'll use grade 8 hex socket bolts. Pretty much the same thing.

    Well, gather them all up and let me have 'em! Or should I just walk around with a magnet and see what sticks to it?? :D
