Swapping U-bolts with 2 plates and long bolts???
I haven't had time lately to finish the YJ / Toy axle swap once and for all but I did encounter some pitfalls along the way that are taking up my thoughts as I wait to get back to work. Namely, finding long enough U-bolts to fit the pass. side springs. I have given up on the search for the U-bolts as they seem to be nearly impossible to find in Canada! Anyway, I was thinking of just taking some 3/8" plate and making a "sandwich" type system with 4 long bolts, instead of U-bolts. Actually, the Toy axles have a lower perch under the axle which looks like it may have been used for this purpose? So, would this be a wise choice, or am I missing something? Thanks for the help :-)
