22-1195hd U-Bolts/Bolts

Postby wilsc449 [OP] » November 24th 2020, 8:41pm

I'm trying to hunt down slightly larger u-bolts/bolts that will fit 22-1195hd leafs without needing to be cutting them. I've seen pictures of the stock bolts barely just working but I'd prefer not to go that way.

I have a quote from ATS Springs for $70 (shipping included to Canada). That'll work out to >$100 CAD once import tax is paid. Seems a lot for a few bolts.
Has anyone else ordered these from another company, US or Canada?

If you have longer bolts readily available at a lower cost why not cut them if you need to?

That's also an option. I have very limited tools, no vice, hack saw etc or a place to work. It would be much easier to get something that fits. But yes, it's an option.

The cheapest option from the link is $21 for one + $70 shipping. $110 for 2 without the bolts.

Ah yeah, that's much cheaper thanks. Do you have a link for the bolts as well?

Are plates necessary? Wouldn't 2 u-bolts and 4 bolts work? I know there will be a small gap on the bolt side but it'll still work yeah?

No you cut off the perch and use plates.. Look up Lumpys custom leaf thread, I think he has some pictures in there.

Yea, get the long u-bolts and cut them to length. Have the equivalent of harbor freight up there? It's $10 for an angle grinder down here https://www.harborfreight.com/corded-4- ... 69645.html

I hope you are right about those pics...

Well, after all... what would Banacek say ?... Anyone that condones the actions of the American People during the Storming of the Capitol are as complicit as the Assholes themselves.
But no way does this let the Democrats or the MSM off the Hook.
