    Which "U-bolts" ?

    U-bolts for the drive shaft universal joints, or U-bolts for the axles ?

    Can you just measure them from your axles, or the old u-bolts?

    Jeeps had many different options for spring packs.

    Most trailer supply places can make whatever you need. NAPA still has USA made versions available too but I doubt they have any for 2 1/4 axle tubes. Kaiser-Willys is the absolute last place I would be getting these from.
