    my rear axle ubolts must have come loose at some point and so there is a gap between the top of the spring leaf, and the underside of the axle. i tried to tighten them up, but no-go. i'm sure if i put my 3/4" socket set on it and a long pipe i'll just snap off the nut from the u-bolt, so i'm going to put on new ubolts.

    the question is: are the ubolts generic in size, or do i have to go to a 'yota dealer for them?

    You can just measure them up, and have any spring shop bend them up for you, they are pretty cheap that way. And don't go to Lordco, they take forever, and charge a lot.
