8.25" Hardware

Hey just a quick question, anyone happen to know the exact specs for the U-Bolts on an '01 with the 8.25" rear axle.

I could also use the specs for the front bushing bolts on the rear leaf springs. (I bought new shackles and bushings, but they didn't come with the front bolts).

Final questions, and I have no idea what this is called, the plate above the leaf springs that the U-Bolts attach to, is there somewhere worth ordering replacements? Mine have rusted pretty badly and I just moved so I haven't found a good local yard yet to pull spares from.

Thanks for the help I know these are simple questions, I'm just kind of new to shopping for hardware and I really need to know before I start taking parts off the car, since I won't be able to drive to TSC without a rear end....

Order U-bolts and U-bolt plates from Iron Rock Off Road.

The front spring eye bolts are metric 14mm x 2.0 pitch x 120mm. You should be able to get those at any good hardware store.

THANKS! Didn't want to take the bolts out to see what they were without being able to replace them. I appreciate the help!
