Re: U-bolt size

the thread size on belltech u-bolts is 1/2-20. our axles are 2.75" diameter so 3" "spread" works, but is a little big.
the u-bolts that jtr sells are very nice, beefy ones. i have stripped to many belltech ones to ever use them again.
click here for info on jtr's u-bolts.

Re: U-bolt size

Like Twin-10 and Petro say, go with JTR for the best quality solid aluminum blocks and beefy 9/16" u-bolts. I did and I'm glad.

Re: U-bolt size

If you're not going to run them long and they just check height I'd get 3" u-bolts. They're easier and cheaper to come by.

Re: U-bolt size

I used these on my truck.



Same measurements and thickness as the JTR U-Bolts and I was able to pick them up at Summit Racing...

Those will work with 3" blocks too, as they are over 9" long.
