    I need to order some new U-bolts for the TSB springs I bought plus an AAL. I am thinking 2" longer. Does anyone know the specs on the regular factory u-bolts. Tried looking it up in the repair manual. No luck.

    Get under your truck and measure. ;)

    Seriously, that's your best bet. Buy the u-bolts longer than you need and cut them down after they're installed. Better to have too long than too short, and cutting them after installation guarantees proper fit without dragging the threads on the ground.

    You'll mangle the thread ends and will have to cut them off if you ever remove the leaf springs in the future, but no big deal because U-bolts really shouldn't be re-used anyway.
