    Anyone make one other than Allpro? Are the U bolts long enough for thicker aftermarket springs or just the stock ones?

    The answer I got from all pro is that the u-bolts are 8" long. That's the measurement from the center of the U to the ends.

    We don't do u-bolt flips right now, however if there was enough interest we could certainly put one together.

    At this point I am going with either some custom Deavers or Alcan springs... Alcan has cheaper shipping and their custom spring with shipping will be cheaper since I live in Texas. Still not decided but leaning Alcan. I am trying to stick to a $4000 budget for the suspension wheels and tires and install myself.
