Anyone know where I can get U-bolts for my F-250 too 350 spacer swap?

Ok I live in Hamilton and the Ford dealership here cant for some dumb reason figure/look-up the part number I need for the F-350 U-bolts since I am swapping my 2" spacerblock for the F-350's 4" rearblock spacer. I cant find a Ford parts website that will give me specs or part numbers so I will not attempt to order online since my first attemp at ordering from the dealer failed. So I guess its either custom made U-bolts or find an Offroad shop that can order aftermarket ones that are the exact specs I need. Ok so does anyone near Missoula MT know if their is a suspension shop that could make U-bolts or an Offroad shop that knows theirs stuff that would or could order the U-bolts I need?

Thanks, this has been such a PITA, I live in Hamilton and we got nothing here and even the Ford Dealership has let me down.

If that doesn't work, check with a local spring shop or Six Roblees.

NAPA? When I needed new u-bolts for my rear swap they just asked what diameter I wanted and what length..............

I would have never guessed Napa would of had U-bolts but I bet they are marked up in price.....at least here they would be.

I bet they are cheaper than Ford... I know when I worked at Bumper to Bumper we sold them by length and diameter, I would imagine that most parts stores would carry them.

Yeah that is true......but back in AZ I used to get one of those bottles of "Lucas Fuel system tune up in a bottle" for $1.99. the same exact thing is $3.99 here in Hamilton at the local Napa and across the street at Bumper to Bumper they are $1.99 so I guess it depends on what you are buying.

We're very fortunate to have a great NAPA here in Kalispell. The guys behind the counter are only a little younger than me, they're gearheads and remember how to pull the books out from under the counter.

Usually when I go in they grin and ask what old thing I'm working on now. Doesn't hurt that I keep my account paid up every month. I don't even bother going to the other shops anymore.

OK, I'm spoiled.

I'm that way with O'Reillys...used to be Bumper to Bumper. That was my first real 9-5 job, okay my only 9-5 job ever. I still know many of the people that work there and I know I can get the right parts, even if I have to give the new kid the part number and show them how to look it up.
