New member.....questions already

Hey gang,new to this forum,bash if need be,I can take it.Member of many bike forums,but this is my first truck forum.Anyway,I'm in Nevada,and bought my son a 2" lift for his 1988 Ranger XLT Supercab.The kit is just the coil spacer,and an add-a-leaf.My question regards the AAL...do I need to buy longer U-bolts for the leaf to fit?I was lubing the bolts for removal tomorrow,and the U-bolts only have about a 1/2" of threads left.Do I just replace the bottom leaf,add it WITH the current leaf pack,or what?No directions came with it for the rear end,only the front.It also came with a bag of 4 long bolts,but I can't see where they would fit in the equation.Also,do I need longer shocks for a 2" lift?Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You won't need longer shocks. And, it's not recommended to reuse u-bolts anyway. Not to mention, it sounds like they will be too short.

You think I need some special U-bolts,or just some good quality longer ones?Thanks for the heads up on the shocks.
