Rear end parts for 1960 9 inch rear end

I am missing one of the plates that sits on top of the leaf springs and under the u bolts. Napa doesn't sell parts like this anymore. What is the part called? Can I just get one that has the same dimensions that is for a newer truck? Also where can I get U bolts for this truck? It is a f100 4x4 so they have to be pretty long. Any help is appreciated.

B9D-5796-A (replaced B7C-5796-A & B9TT-5796-A) .. Rear Spring Cap ~ Located on top of rear spring, u-bolt threads pass thru it / Obsolete

1957/64 F100/250 2WD & 1959/64 F100/250 4WD

No Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.
-----------------------------------------------
B7C-5705-A .. U Bolt / Obsolete

1957/60 F100 2WD = Use with 7 or 9 leaf spring pack / 1959/60 F100 4WD = Use with 7 leaf spring pack only.

CARPENTER NOS PARTS in Concord NC has 3 = 800-476-9653.

NORTZ & VIRKLER FORD in Lowville NY has 5 = 315-376-6594.
------------------------------------------------------------
B9C-5705-B .. U Bolt / Obsolete

1959/60 F100 4WD = Use with 9 leaf spring pack.

BOWMAN SALES & SERVICE in Bowman ND has 7 = 701-523-3257.

Note: 4WD's use different 7 & 9 leaf rear springs than 2WD's.

Any spring shop can make u-bolts. Maybe take the other plate off and just make one from some 1/2 inch plate.

Thanks guys! I will look into having some U bolts made if it is cheaper then buying them from a parts guy and making a spring cap doesn't seem like it would be too difficult.

You also might try a trailer supply store for the U bolts. I just went up to a local trailer dealerships parts dept for some U bolts a couple weeks ago and they had a whole wall full of them.

Speedway sells the ubolts. Here's the link. Pretty reasonable actually! Speedway 1948-60 Ford Half-Ton Rear Axle U-Bolts, Set/4 - Speedway Motors, America's Oldest Speed Shop

Yeah! That seems like a pretty good price. I'm not sure if they are long enough though. I will have to go measure. Thanks!

Hi, so I measured and those ones are too short. The ones I have are 12" long. I think I will just have a company bend some or try to save the ones I have.
