Post U bolts for a '78 front dana 60

Where do I get them?

So far everyone I've called seems to think I just need plain u-bolts. They are WRONG! The drive side does not use plain u-bolts, I can tell just by looking at it for two seconds, but I have never seen what I am looking for so I don't know how to describe it.

Does any one have a good picture of the driver side mounting hardware? Or better yet, an extra set they can sell me?

Try a spring shop most of them can make the custom ubolts. the ford dealer might work too, but I don't know.

Here is a picture, you can kind of see the drivers side mounting, but its very similar to the passenger side mount.

Do you have the piece that fits on the bottom of the u-bolts? This is kinda important its formed to the housing. I just had new U-bolts made (no problem) When I bought 60 I made sure I got that cradle looking thing. Maybe Ford? <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

Yeah, I need the part that goes under the driver's side.
