It came with u bolts but they are to short. They are maybe 1/8 of a inch over the plate. And i checked th auto parts places yesterday the biggest ones they carried is for exhaust. I have the 31 spline.

Exhaust u-bolts that are like 15" long????????? That's completely unheard of.



Those ones in the kit will not work for your 31spline. They are for an axle 1/4" smaller in tube diameter than your axle.

well..how long are the ones in your kit? add 1" or 1.5".

*i understood biggest to the big the other way my bad...exhaust clamps are WAYYYY to thin of a rod anyhow. you'll want at least 7/16 rod.



Havn't heard of these issues with the superlift as far as ubolt lengths being wrong....It's all about that 3.25" axle tube and trying to make 3" bolts fit it.

yep...research helps before being screwed when you need something right now.


idk the proper measurements of the bolts you want, just I know the ubolts need to be make for a 3.25" axle tube.

and...i didn't wanna deal with the sketchyness of double stacked blocks...i went AAL and shackle route...made the truck very level.
