Custom bent U-bolts from 3/8 to 1 1/4 inch diameter SAE threads, made to your specifications are especially suited for suspension, leaf spring and body mounting. They have hundreds of other uses.
We bend our own U-bolts on a hydraulic bender cold. Reason? Because the grain of the metal stays oriented in the right direction for maximum strength. The stock rod may be bent in many shapes.
The most common shapes are SQUARE TOP, SEMI-ROUND TOP and ROUND TOP. The threads are SAE (fine) and manufactured by rolling hardened blank rods between dies. This makes the non-threaded part of the stock slightly smaller in diameter, resulting in a stronger material and more resistant to stripping or breaking.
