What is the length of my 71 fj40 u bolts?

I installed a 2" shakle lift and 6* shim. My Ubolts are now too short. The nuts don't cover the studs all the way. I would like 1" longer for for the front and 2.5" longer for the rear. I need a longer set for the rears b/c I will be installing an "add-a-leaf" when the hardtop goes on for winter. My u bolts are on the truck, and I wanted to try to dig some up on the web w/o pulling and measuring

I am pretty certain that SOR stocks and sells longer U-bolts. I would also buy a longer centering pin so that it extends beyond the shim and engages the spring pack too. Very cheap insurance.
