Question on U-Bolts for rear

I am changing my rear spacers on my 2011 F250 to the 4" spacers used on F350s. I ordered the new U-bolts (BC3Z-5705-G) and they didn't come with new nuts. Does anyone have any idea where I can find the nuts to go on these U-bolts? I am putting a Carli Suspension levelling kit on....that's the reason for the spacers changeout. I appreciate the help.

What is the torque specification on those nuts? From a strictly engineering point of view, I would never re-use bolts and nuts in applications where life or death could hang in the balance. The nuts are probably $4-5 a piece from your local Ford parts counter.

The u-bolt is the part that stretches, ever seen a nut stretch ? I havn't. I put new ones on my truck because they came with the block kit. But i wouldn't hesitate to re-use the nuts if i had too, as long as the threads are clean and free of rust and show no signs of galling. But fell free to buy some new ones if you like.

I found the part # for the u-bolt nuts. I appreciate the feedback. I am going to replace the nuts. I would rather err on the side of caution. If anyone else needs the part # for the u-bolts or nuts, let me know.
