    I figured out most of the dimensions they need to be 2 1/2" wide and 13" long and the only socket i could find that fit was a 7/8. i want to lift higher using my new 5 1/2" blocks but i cant find a single place online that will sell U-Bolts for it. I know someone out there has done it i just need some guidance please.

    Take it to a spring shop and have them custom made.

    yea your axle wrap will be bad... but if thats what you want then hit up a local spring shop. almost all of them can make you custom ones... or possibly try beefedtaco on here, i know he makes custom ones for his drop kits, maybe he can hook you up with a custom set to your specs...
