need bolt sizes

Im getting ready to put my lift on. I have purchased camburg ucas, toytec coils, bilsteing 5100 front shocks, 5150 rear shocks and all pro 3" leaf packs (not the expedition) i thought it would be a good idea to have bolt sizes for the ucas and for the new leafs going on in case one or more break (very apt to happen) does anyone have the bolt sizes? also, is there anything else i need for my lift?

As for what else you might need. Definately want to use new u-bolts. I'd also recommend having a new set of poly bushings for the leaf spring fronts. You'll likely destroy the originals getting them out. Wheelers is a good source for both of these items.

Those camburg UCAs look awesome. I am considering those. Look forward to hearing about how they work out.

the all pro leafs i ordered came with new poly bushings, did you reuse the stock bolts that go through the eye of the leafs or did you buy new ones?

I did not reuse the stock ones. I could have because mine came apart relatively easily. But I've seen many examples where that bolt had to be cut off to get the old spring off.

Knowing that I ordered the poly bushing kit from wheelers that included a greasable type replacement bolt.

Yea. Be prepared to cut out the old bolt. The metal spacer in the middle of the old rubber bushing likes to seize onto the bolt. Beating it out usually won't work.
Measure the old one and get a new grade 8 bolt of the same size or slightly longer.

Mine all came apart relatively easily when installing my shackles...I just hit the bolt until I could get a pry bar on the head end and it slid right out.

True. Plus the 5 lugger doesn't see much wheeling

Plenty of salt though....

I just did my leaf packs ,ended up having to buy the new eye bolts from the dealer . They are M14x1.5 x 100 long grade 8. Try getting them somwhere else te dealer was expensive. I used a sawsall to cut mine off make sure you have lots extra blades.
