    My AAL (Icon) came with new u-bolts. I never bothered to check if they were different (or longer) than the old ones.

    I don't think the stock u-bolts are long enough for an add-a-leaf AND an axle shim. As I recall, they didn't have a lot of excess length on mine.

    I put on a wheeler's flip kit & superbumps when I put on my Dakars. Didn't measure them.

    I can't speak for that add-a-leaf since I have no dealings with that company. I can say pretty confidently that they are not Deaver like the ones that we along with many other TW vendors sale. When using the Deaver single leaf add-a-leaf, longer u-bolts are not necessarily required. As long as the factory ones have not been modified and that the thread completely passes through the nut they should be long enough to accommodate the add-a-leaf. Some people do not like to re-torque a bolt so if you want we do have our HS U-bolts available that will work with the single aal.

    Thanks! Another question, how thick is your single leaf add-a-leaf?
