SAS and u-bolts

What are you all using for u-bolts on leaf sprung SAS's?

1/2", 9/16", or 5/8" bolts, or did you reuse old bolts?

They make u-bolts in grade 5 and grade 8, anybody think grade 8 u-bolts is worth the money?

cool thanks it's 5/8 grade 8 then

I think I'm gonna do a square u-bolt setup on the drivers side of my waggy axle, like the toyota style, anyone see a problem with that?-it just seemed easier to setup.
