UBolts

I have the TSB done and I am about to order a toytec AAL, my question is if I am going to need new ubolts. I am also installing 5100's all around.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

U bolts are not a re usable bolt, technically. However, if they arent too old, I have re used them in the past.

I think hes asking if they are long enough. With a TSB and an Add-a-leaf you will need longer U-Bolts. Chris will confirm.

Actually, The U bolts used on teh TSB spring pack are long enough to accomodate an AAL.

OP, Check to make sure you have about 1/2" of thread showing on the U bolts.

Gotcha... I've installed too many. It gets to be a blur on which needs them and which don't. I remember thinking that the TSB also came with slightly longer u-bolts, but I wasn't %100 sure.
