Just like the title says, can I re-use my stock U-bolts or do I have to buy special ones to work with the OME rear springs. I would think that I could just re-use. Also what is the proper torque for the ubolts and leaf spring bolts.

I would get a new set of U bolts anyways. They get stressed when they go on the first time and shouldn't really be re-used. That's just what I've heard anyways. They are really cheap, so I would just replace them.

Don't the OMEs come with new U-bolts? I doubt the old ones will fit the new pks unless you pull a leaf or two ;)

90# for torque.

Thanks, I got them used, so they weren't included, I'll give Wheeler's a call then.
