U-bolts

I need to find out where to get U-bolts for my 20 rear. I cant just order them outta a catalog cause im swapping in 9 leaf packs and they arent long enough. they need to be atleast 8 inches long and quadratrac and 4wheel hardware both said theirs are only 7.5. what is the exact size of the U-bolt. quadratrac and 4wheel hardware say its a 2 9\16 U-bolt. the local hardware store sells hardened U-bolts in all shapes and sizes but not 2 9\16. any ideas?

I had to buy some from a custom spring shop. They were custom made for me, I just took my old ones in and told the guy they needed to be about an inch longer. Four Ubolts cost me about 25 bucks, and took the guy about five minutes.
The spring shop I went to made custom springs for large trucks like dump trucks and semis.
good luck
Tim

I have no idea what the springs came outta. the guy i got them from said he thought they were out of an old wagoneer but i think they are just the 7 and 9 leaf packs out of an old CJ. the guy couldnt even remember why he had them in his garage and after i measured my springs and found they were the same length, i asked him what he was going to do with them. he told me 25 bucks and their yours...they had almost brand new bushings in them so i figured that was a good deal. they give me roughly 2.5" of lift and keep my jeep sitting right even after all the heavy acc. and hardtop are on.
