    I have several sets of u-bolt spring brackets for 1 ton and am not sure what ones for the 14 bolt ff. I know I can order aftermarket, but was wanting to hang this afternoon. Anyone have A pic showing TIA :crazy:

    the plate you have goes on the axle tube. then the square top ubolts go on the springs from the top. between the spring pack and the ubolts there is a little plate that helps center the ubolts. but this setup cind of sucks. best option is to do a ubolt flip kit. get round ubolts and new top plate better ground clearence.

    one last ?

    The ubolts that came w/skyjacker lift kit look to be to large. I dont have original bolts as i'm installing the lift at the same time as changing to the 14 ff and dana 60. What do you think from pic? :doah:

    Thanks again i was being really stupid{happens all the time :mad: }. I found that steve has kit that includes new u-bolts. If the ones I have will work, well you can't have to many spare parts. :laugh:
