99-04 front u-bolt size????

Swapping out the springs on the front of my truck, and i'm trying to find new u-bolts to use. Truck currently has a 4" pro comp lift on it, and i'm removing it and going back down to just a leveling kit.

Truck is a late 99. springs have an add-a-leaf so i believe i need 10" or 10.5" long u-bolts, somewhere there about. That's the best meaurement i can get off the one's that are currently on it.

Are the late 99-04 frot u-bolts considered "square" u-bolts, or the "large radius" u-bolts?

And what size are they?

I think the lift has been on approx. 25k-30k miles. Can i just re-use the u-bolts that are on it?

You can reuse the bolts if there is enough thread left on them. They don't wear out so it will not be a problem.

I thought since they were torque to yield they stretch?

Or is that just the rears?

Not TTY. My rear block kit came with new ubolts and they were not TTY either.

Well heck, didn't realize that. Thought I'd read they were TTY.

Why do people say not to reuse u-bolts then?

Maybe from a corrosion or damage standpoint! Not really sure.
