If you're looking for the best possible clearance under your new axles, eliminating your U-bolts is the way to go. This also allows you to run an axle truss that covers the entire length of your axle housing. This kit is designed to fit Jeep Cherokee XJ leaf springs onto our Sterling 10.25/10.50 Rear Axle Truss. Pre-cut holes key the leaf spring perches into the correct position to match the factory leaf spring mounting width.
This kit includes:
(2) 1/4" Thick Left/Right Pair of Leaf Spring Perches
(2) 3/8" Thick Top Plates
All components are laser cut from A36 HR P&O Steel and CNC Formed.
This kit is designed to use standard 5/8" Grade 8 hex bolts in place of U-bolts; the bolts length will be determined by the thickness of your leaf spring pack and can be sourced online or at your local fasteners store.
3 center pin positions are cut to allow for adjustment either 1 inch forward or 1 inch backwards. Center pin holes are intended for use with factory XJ 5/16" center pins (15/32" head) however can be redrilled larger for use with larger 3/8" center pins (typically using a 9/16" head.) This kit if for use with both factory and aftermarket 2.5" width Jeep XJ leaf springs.
