Don't know where you live , but just go to a spring shop and they can custom make any size u-bolt you want.

Why ditch the shackle? Chances are you'll hate the AAL.

Are you having trouble finding 3" blocks or just the u-bolts that will fit your axle?

the center pins should all be the same for Fords.

it's 3 1/4, superlift guy is wrong

order the ones from ballistic. they are super long and you cut off what you don't need

Just a heads up, Ruffstuff is cheaper than Ballistic. I linked them in one of your other threads.

Ok, in all honesty. Does it make sense to make 3 thread about ubolts and blocks, where a bunch of people have responded with legitimate answers and links to get what you want. All the information you could possibly need for your questions. Yet you still haven't ordered anything. What are you waiting for? Someone to drop in here and say "Hey, I have exactly what you are looking for for $10 shipped, you want?" Open up all the links that WE provided for you. Do some shopping, pic a site, and go for it. There is nothing else we can do for you.

Make sense? I'm not trying to b*tch you out. I'm just trying to make a logical point.

It's not as complicated as you're making it. Follow some links, all of your research is done, you just have to buy.
