    Default Replacement Spring Brackets?

    I am in the process of installing a Rough Country 2 1/2 inch suspension lift. The kit did not come with replacement u-bolt brackets. The original brackets are in pretty rough shape. (really can't use them again. Plus the new u-bolts are slightly larger than OE) I was wondering where to buy the front and rear brackets for the u-bolts. Pricing is all over the place on the main 5 places, and I don't want to overpay for something that seems simple. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm assuming you mean the U BOLT Plates, I would suggest the HD U bolt plates from Anything scout. I got mine there, any price diff wouldn't be that large, and for me not paying taxes (California) makes it worth it.

    I spoke to anything scout, he said the HD plates were for a SOA lift and would not work with a SUA lift. He has some that will work...but it's 200 bones for the set... seems pricey.

    You can look them up on eBay; they're 30 bucks a pair there, but you'd have to weld on your own shock mounts. Better than nothing though...
