Junk yard would be my best guess besides the dealer. Might want to try the Toyota board.

Re: help with u-bolt plates please

yeah, ive already got the 1/2 plate and drill press. just lazy. but mostly i'm trying to figure out where to get the parts so others can easily do the swap once i get the bugs out. but they ride greeeeeat! and travel awesome. much better than the wrangler springs.

Bill,

How much longer/shorter than the Yj springs are the Yota springs?

I'D HAVE TO CHECK AGAIN, BUT I THINK THEY WERE 5" OR SO LONGER THAN THE WRANGLERS. THEY ALSO HAVE A DOUBLE MILITARY WRAP ON EM TO CONTROL SPRING WRAP.

You probably can pick up some Wrangler plates for cheap - they also sell them new. Cut off the shock mounts from your factory plates & weld them on = Done.
