If I add two or three more leaves to the rear ones I have now, to get added lift and flex, would I need to install longer U-bolts at the same time. If so, where can I get longer ones.

Thanks

i think all you would need to do is take a measurment of how thick the leaves are and see how much you have to work with.

im kinda looking for a good local source for some new ubolts myself because i've got some that are too wide and they don't really "hug" my leaves.

I was thinking about it an think I should be ok since I am probably going to remove my overload leaf. If they are too short I guess I'll have to run down to the spring shop. Thanks

When I added my AAL, I had enough length on the stock u-bolts, but that was it. I was going to add a block and bought new u-bolts from my local 4x4 shop, but ended up not needing them. Most 4x4 shops will have new u-bolts in stock. The ones I bought were a Rancho Suspension product.

With my AAL I have a couple of threads left but I'm looking for some longer ones just to be safe. It would suck to go over a rock and leave your axle.

It would also suck to go over a rock and catch your longer U-bolts on rocks.

If you have two or more threads below the nut you'll be good, add some thread lock if your worried about loosening. ;)

Go buy some new ones. You will have a hard time getting off the old ones with out breaking them.
