Hi, I'm looking for 1 U bolt for the front of my truck that is about 2 inches longer than stock. The one that I'm looking for should be about 6-7 or so long. I need one to install my power assist steering ram. One more important item, my truck is a '62 F100 for reference. I only need one. My zip code is 49525, Grand Rapids, MI. I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year! CHEERS! And thanks.

You can go to a spring & axle shop and have one made....
The place I go to is INLAND TRUCK PARTS
I'm sure their are others in you're area

Kinda discourage using 50 year old bolts on axles

...Or you can even get them from the local auto parts store. I replaced the 4 on my rear axle with exact replacements from the local AdvanceAuto.

Thanks for the link. I need some square "U" bolts as I have misplaced the one's that came with my mono leaf springs so I can attempt to sell them. These are very reasonable.
