    You know you need this dude's flip kit, it'll make things clear obstacles while not chewing up the U bolt nuts and threads.
    I have flipped my U bolts, you should flip your's also.

    I get nothing for promoting this guy's stuff, just showing off is all.
    Flip it or break it, it'll be sweet in the end.

    Ray-
    Couldn't agree with you more in terms of pointing the U bolts up, instead of down. This particular thread is about a kit for just Toyota rear axles, that generally come stock with square U bolt facing down. Our kit uses round u-Ubolts that face up, like the one you shared, which looks pretty sweet!

    We're putting together a Toyota front axle kit, but I believe we need a new die for the U bolt bender, I'll have to check.

    Thanks for sharing!

    U bolts aimed in the correct direction is what it's all about, I'll cut them down tomorrow.
