Front U-Bolts

Post by Eds-68-Chevy on Fri Sep 16, 2016 8:07 pm


Anybody know where to get front leaf spring/axle beam U-Bolts for a 68 gmc handi-van?
They're an odd ball size. I can't find them anywhere. I'm sure I could have them made but I'm guessing that would be expensive.

A - 1/2

b - 2 5/8

c - 3 3/4

Semi-round (special bend)

I had some made in Dallas about 5 or 6 years ago. I think they charged me about $80 bucks to make me some. And your right, they are hard to match. The place I went had the die for the right bend and put them in a press to make them as I waited.

I'm looking for new front U-Bolts Panelmanrd...I wouldn't buy used U-Bolts.

Thanks for the tip Dougtappan....I'll try Palmer Spring in Woburn Ma and Donovan Spring Company in Londonderry New Hampshire.

If I have to get a set made I guess $80 isn't a bad price Scott.
