    I don't have the measurements, but an automotive parts supply store should have both the measurements and the u-bolts.

    11" long sounds mighty long for the front. I sure hope you have a thick spring pack and sure as hell aren't putting blocks up front.

    On the front axle, the 3 u-bolts are a 3" i.d. and the 1 larger u-bolt is a 3 5/8" i.d.
    All 4 are a 5/8" rod size.

    Rears are also 4 u-bolts all with 3" i.d. and 5/8" rod size.
