    Were these purchased new, or taken off of a vehicle?

    I got them with some TRD shocks I picked up a while back. The guy who I bought the shocks from had just updated his entire suspension, he told me they were from his Tacoma when he updated the rear leafs. My shocks had less that 1000 miles on them, so the same would hold true for these U-bolts.

    Thanks

    But, they did come off of a truck? I hear a lot of folks say that you shouldn't reuse u bolts. I am starting to agree, after installing an aal it appears that mine have stretched a bit and am having trouble getting them to torque correctly. But, GLWS.

    The threads get distorted unevenly, and the the really long nut used on u-bolts further the problem. The threads bind inside the nut and you can under-torque the u-bolt. If you run a die down it, it's better because the threads are cut back in the right orientation. I still wouldn't do it, but to each their own. When you can get a whole new U bolt package (4 new u bolts, washers, nuts) for $35 shipped why take the risk.

    Sorry OP I know I trashed your FS thread and I am an asshole, but this is the kinda stuff that someone who doesn't know should know before buying this type of item.

    U bolts are not supposed to be re used because they stretch when you install them .

    wish I had a need for them myself so I could use them.

    MODS, please close this thread, it's obvious the intent is these don't get sold

    thanks
