Is there a spring place in SA that makes u-bolts? I swaped a Dana 44 into the front of my Blazer and it seems that the inner u-bolt from the 10 bolt on the passenger side is too long. All the other u-bolts fit just fine. Thanks.

If it will tighten down,just cut off the rest. The spring place I use is over there off Akerman.

The bolt sticks through the plate so far that the threads do not reach the plate. I had to stack an inch and a half of washers on the bolt so that I could tighten it. What's the name of the shop on Ackerman? Thanks

u bolts

I have had good luck finding axle u bolts at ABC and NAPA although you may not have either of those parts houses in SA, good luck.

Thanks. I would never think that they would carry those.

Called Advanced, Oreillys and NAPA - they don't carry them.

FYI - S.A. Brake and Clutch on Avenue B can make them to your specs. Mine was under 11 bucks for one.
