Default Need longer U Bolts

Can anyone suggest where I can get 1/2" 4x8 Square U Bolts?
I have an 08 Precedent with the Jakes Long Travel.
I have set the front to 8" and need longer U Bolts to
get the rear up another 2"

Thanks

I went to Tractor Supply Store and they did not have any long heavy duty bolts. I ended up going to a local shop specializing in suspensions and they made some custom bolts, and they welded the perch to the axel and they also welded the bottom brake cable holder to the axel as well. Very sturdy, not going anywhere now.

I believe you will need to fab some up with plates and bolts.

Thanks everyone for the ideas. I have checked Tractor Supply and 2 different Trailer places
and had no luck.
I suppose I will make some like DOOMsman suggested.
I have some 1/4" plate I can use and purchase bolts and weld them to the plate.
Sound about right?

I have found them at oreileys auto parts but they were too long or short for my lift or were not the right width.

I fabbed up a plate with bolts but I just did not rust it with the amoun of torque i am running and feared losing the whole rear axel, not a pleasant thought. A u bolt will be much stronger, they used a flat to ubolt and that goes over the spring and bolts into the bottom plate that holds the brake wire.

I got mine at Grainger Supply. Not sure if there is one close to you or not.

Good Luck!
