maybe this thread needs to be moved to suspension section?
I have new U-Bolts in hand, and shock bolts in case i need to detach shock from axle.

two outstanding questions before the AAL arrives on monday...

- do i need to find a specialty extra deep socket to be able to wrench down the u bolt nuts with my torque wrench? i have deep sockets but they arent anything out of the ordinary

- While putting everything back together, is there anything that will need anti-seize or loctite?

My dad has a 98 ranger, 2x4 base everything, 4cyl m/t, he had that problem then he put the air adjustable shocks on it, has not had an issue since.

Fixed this over here:

Will be listing the AAL and dealer U-Bolts for sale later today.

air system has been great, the truck handles great and feels much more planted in the rain, no more spinning wheels or loose rear end. I'm really happy with it.
