Glad you figured it out so quickly! Yes... This site is really good with very knowledgeable people (I'm not one of them... I'm just learning.) Look what happened to my U-bolts! If the metal is crap, they bend and warp with time as they are tightened. This happened to my U-bolts in only two months! Went to the 4 U-bolt system for the rear end and they are a better steel with ATV specs. So far, so good!

Apparently Jake's doesn't know their bolt specs. I called them and they don't have an adapter for using 2 U bolts per side either so I guess I will buy some grade 8 bolts and fab some plates to make if work.

I put the HD on my 2002 Ds and have no problems. Campground has bumpy I paved roads and lots of trails and they work well. I am always driving and my kids are on the back but they love the ride, maybe I would think otherwise if I was on the back.

I just used the same stock bolts on mine. And they work fine. But, I only use mine on the street.

I got mine from AllSports. The new U-Bolts are working fine, but I've been having some problems lately with some of AllSports parts. Right now, I'm dealing with them on an HID light kit. My guy who does all my electrical work on my cart thinks there may be a problem with the wiring harness, but AllSports is giving pushback. I've been going to different vendors lately for any new parts I buy. I've had absolutely nothing but excellent service and advice from ScottyB at Carts Unlimited. I really like purchasing from him! I've also had good service from David Hicks at Revolution Golf Cars! AllSports may become a thing of the past with me very soon.

If you're using yours only on the street, they may work just fine without any problem whatsoever. Just be sure the U-Bolts are tight once in a while because they still may tend to loosen and/or stretch a little over time.

Might have been overkill, for our 6 inch lift and overload springs we made top and bottom four bolt plates and purchased grade 5 bolts. Installation with rear disc brakes, so far has been trouble free so far on moderate trail terrain.
