It's the front you need correct? I ask because your subject reads 'Rear u-bolts'

If you just have leveling springs, they should not be much thicker than the stock springs. I temporarily have a 2" add-a-leaf installed in my front springs and the stock bolts still stick out around an 1/2" from the nut.

Measure the thickness of the new spring pack and compare to the stock spring pack. Then measure the amount of bolt sticking out from the nuts on your front axle.

Thanks justin Its just add a leaf to my stock spring pack. Its not good to use the stock u bolts again right? Also off the top of your head do you know if they are square u bolts or round ones. I look at them and I cant really tell a difference.

Actually they are semi-round and should look like these.

You should replace them. Usually a local truck spring shop can make them up for you for about $10 bucks each.
