    Anyone know of a U-bolt flip kit for the 5 luggers axle over springs? Or have you made a kit yourself?

    as in u-bolts shaped like the 6 lug trucks? that would be really the only way to "flip" them. and you wouldn't have anywhere to mount the shock....

    Yes that's what I mean if I used the u bolts from a six lug and mount the bracket that the bottom of the shock bolts to on top of the axle I think it can work. But not 100% sure, it would be cool if I could have someone donate or i can buy their old u bolts and shock plate from a pre-runner for cheap. I could weld shock mount tabs to the axle or use the stock mounts on the plate
