can you just use existing u-bolts or do you need to modify them or get new ones to do a u-bolt flip. i ordered the plate from the stealership, and i have a part number if you need it..

Just to warn ya DO NOT I repeat DO NOT buy the u-bolts at autozone or advance auto. There really cheap and I wouldn't trust them with my life.

Here is a crappy pic of the u bolt flip on my 2500.

I used the plates for an 03-up and ground out the holes a little to allow me to run 5/8" BDS u bolts. The part number for the 2500 plates is on here somewhere, I believe V10Sport posted it.

so what U bolts would work ?? that are strong enough for serious wheeling ??

could you just get them for the 03 up 1500 ? with the plate ?

or perhaps even the 2500's 03 and up U bolts ?? or are the axle housing different diameters ? :dunno::

looking into doing this also since i can never get the existing U bolts to crank down totally

For your u-bolts just go to your local spring shop and have them made to your specs. I paid like $7 ea. including nuts and washers.

im guessing the plates on the 1500 is not as wide as the 2500 right? since there only 2.5" wide compared to 3" am i right on that? if so, then the part # above is only for 1/2 tons!

The 03 and up U-bolts would work if you don't have a spring shop near by to fab them, right?

The 2500 plates are wider for the 3" springs. I think it was like $65 for the pair. For my U bolts I just measured what size I needed and had the local BDS dealer order some for me.
