I know this thread is a little old but I was wanted to weigh in on this one instead of starting a new one. I am wanting to lift my 2012 F350 Dually but I am learning that the kits out their for F350 have a disclaimer for the "Dually" versions. After calling the factories of these companies directly (Skyjacker, Rancho, Zone, etc), they tell me it just boils down to simply the U-bolts not fitting over the larger rear axle of the F350 Dually's, that if you can get larger U-bolts then it will work. Makes me wonder why these idiots don't offer the bolts if it is that simple. Anyhow, did you all have to over come this as well? And, if so, who/where did you get your U-bolts from? Thanks for the help. Daron

some local shops can make them for you, you just have to call around, and there are a couple places that come up when you Google custom u-bolts, all you need are the measurements

if not try giving rufstuffspecialties and call/here are some of there u-bolts
U-Bolts - RuffStuff Specialties

or some of you local offload shops might be able to get them to


that would be my starting point, only reason i brought u ruff-stuff is because there big in offering spring pads and etc to do axle swaps and might carry what your looking for

there also might be a vendor on here that can get them for you to.

Axle widths and spring perches, are different, not sure about spring eye to eye length, or shock placement.

Hey guys I just wanted to ask a question. Other than the u bolts needing to be make is there anything else to over come if I went and ordered a 4" lift from any supplier? Ie rear sway bar, overload spring pack, brake lines? Personal experience or common practice correction for install.
