    I recently bought an '01 S-Runner. The previous owner has installed aftermarket coils in front and 3" blocks in the rear for a 3" drop all around.
    I want to put it back to stock height so I'm planning on taking out the 3" lowering blocks and I'm looking for a pair of stock S-Runner coils for the front. Of course the original parts are long gone so I need some shorter u-bolts for the rear and longer coils for the front.
    My questions are:
    1. Without going to the dealer, where can I find a pair of stock S-Runner coil springs?
    2. If I can't find coils specifically for an S-Runner, will coils from any '01-'04 two wheel drive with the 3.4 liter engine work?
    3. What is the correct size for the rear u-bolts. The ones currently on there are 1/2" diameter, about 6.5" height and I haven't yet determined the inside width. They are threaded about 2" so when I take out the 3" blocks the u-bolts are not going to be threaded enough to pull the springs up to the axle. If I can find out the correct size for the u-bolts I can go down to the spring shop and they will make me u-bolts in any size I need. Anybody know the correct size for the u-bolts?

    You could do this a couple ways,

    1. Call some local junk yards and find a donor truck. You can get all the parts pretty cheap

    2. Most Auto stores can look up what size u-bolts you need. They can also order replacement springs.

    3. put a WTT ad in the for sale section

    4. Google

    Alternatively, you could just ask your spring shop cut the thread further down on the u bolts you have, and then cut the excess off once you have it all put back together. Just leave a quarter inch of thread past the bolt .

    Oh, and you'll probably need new shocks.
