Default Lift kit spring U Bolt snapped-can you get grade 8?

I got a 6" spindle lift kit from another site and the u bolts they give snapped on the first bump i hit.
Anyone know if grade 8 u bolts can be bought in this size? I have a 4 leaf spring on it so a little longer than the ones that came with it would be nice.

Lesson learned ?

Any good hardware store will carry Grade 8 bolts .... you just need to bring your old one so you can match it up


Don't buy stuff on other sites Support our sponsors

We have a very complete hardware store that carries that kinda stuff but if you don't you might try an auto parts store?

I,m guessing you have a club car by the u-bolt dimensions.
Most common u-bolts are grade 2. You can get u-bolts rated grade 5 from the sponsors. If you are running a motor upgrade, then I would recomend using a 4 u-bolt set up. Depending on the lift components, You may possibly be able to use bolts ( depending on the plate mounted on top of the leaf springs. If the plate is 1/4" or heavier, you can use bolts).

if the sponsers don't have them try looking in the phone book for spring shops....they should be able to bend you some. we have a bender at work but only stock 1/2" to 7/8" rod

A 6" lift with H.D springs will only require 6-7' u-bolts.
Any of the sponsors should be able to hook you up.
The All Sports Super Sport rear uses 2 u-bolts per side.
If you are running more than stock, this set up will do the trick.
You can order the u-bolts and the hardware from sponsors.
Stock motor should be fine with grade 5 u-bolt, again, sponsors.

You will have to contact one of them. These parts are not in kit form.
You will have to order them seperate. Any All Sports dealer can get you the u-bolts you need.
