I'm reassembling my axle, and bought new u-bolts from Tractor Supply, they're intended for a 3,500 lb. axle, 1/2" diameter and 2.5" wide. They're about an inch too short. Lowes and Home Depot don't have u-bolts that are 1/2" thick and 2.5" wide. Fastenal and Grainger don't either (not on their websites, anyway).
Does anyone know where I could possibly buy longer u-bolts? I'd hate to have to buy new springs just because of this.

Many decent sized towns or small cities have at least one spring shop, or custom suspension shop. these are the folks who do custom work "lifting" pick-ups or lowering hot rods. they can make you U-Bolts however you want them in a matter of minutes.
