Well.. in preperations for the lift I am tryign to get together. I looked through my boxes of parts and i found enough bushings to do all my connections except 1. (need 2 half bushings to get this to work.) I really want red as that is what the other bushings are. I figured I might hit up Clemson 4wheel tommorow.

Did anyone ever work out somehow for me to get thier old u-bolts to go get some made?? And when you got them made for $28? Did they include nuts and washers???
Also what dimensions do I tell Clemson 4wheel if I end up getting the ubolts from them?

If not can I park the cruiser where I want to do the work and cut off 1 frt and 1 rear and take them to g-ville? Then come back and do the work on it? Mainly trying to figure something out since I live a good hr from G-ville.

don't know about the bushings but clemson 4wheel won't have the U-bolts, or at least they didn't last time i was in there looking for them. I think they can look up the dimensions and order them though, give them a call and ask. i have a back up set of MAF rear u-bolts you can use for sizing, but i fly home friday for 2.5 weeks so i am not sure how i could get one to you...

Are you going to be at graduation or around Clemson? I think it is thursday? I am hoping to come I know 2 people who are walking. Maybe I could get one of them from you then.

I heard someone else had a front ubolt. Anyone???

yeah i got one, here is what you do. The stock bushings should be the same as the new bushings you have gotten. I believe. So use all your new bushings on every where you can see, then take the 2 best old bushings and use them on the inside on the rear on the inside, no one will be able to see them then. Can you take your wife's car to g ville? I would then take the ubolts up there and have them made, and yes that includes the nuts and washers.

That sounds good. Or my friend who is graduating lives in greer. I will check with him and see if you 2 might be able to meet up.

It looks liek cruisin tiger has a front one. Maybe you can get it to him and I can pick up both of them and get them made this week?
I will check with my friend today though.

Thanks a ton man!! Hopefully when you get back down here I can finally go on a offroading trip with the group and not be afraid of being stock :)

Thats cool Ghen just drop by the house, I'll probably be in the garage messing with the cruiser. I have done all I can on the cage for now but I am going to patch up a few other spots and try and figure some things out.
