What all is everyone doing for the left side u-bolts when you dont have the cast u-bolt bracket?

Go to the Ford Dealer & order a new one for about $50.

Thats all they are? Any part number
No, I had it written down one time but lost it. They asked me if it had the sway bar attached to it. So I would assume that one was ment for the SD. You will just have to go into the dealer & bug the parts guy for about 15-20 mins.

PM TomS for the part number, I just sent it to him. However, someone posted that the clamshell bracket was no longer serviced by Ford, so it may be a wrecking yard item only.

Do a dealer search, a lot of discontinued items sit for years on shelves but remain a part of inventory.

check on the 60's under the front of the older fords. like the 70's body style they have the part your talking about also. an those old things are a dime a dozen.

I got one of an 80's gasser with the 44 front(I think) The bell housing had a hole for one of the U bolts---Fit was good on the 60

Ford didnt use a solid axle 44 so it must of come off D60

They did have Dana 44s on the pre-79 F250s, 8 lugs. But once again we are back to the 70s & not an 86+.
