    Full set of U bolts and lock nuts for leaf springs Mk2

    Looking for set of standard length U bolts (if possible) and lock nuts. All new ones seem to be longer size. If you have a cheap set of longer ones that will do too as long as they have enough thread for use with no blocks.

    Cheers

    Couple of pairs of these, bit long but you've only got to cut them to length.

    Yea pretty sure the last set I bought were more than that, an that would've been about 1990.

    They were probably made with good old British Steel back then. 6.99 seems a bit too cheap, they have a big responsability holding the axle in place. A company called Lusso use to make them back in the day along with wheel spacers.

    No longer needed, got a set to try (if needed) unused, as new condition and a few quid cheaper than buying new too.

    Blimey, good for you.

    And I thought I was tight.

    I'd happily pay 14 quid for a new set of U bolts.
