Anybody know what size the rear axle/leaf spring u-bolts would be for my 1960 Plymouth wagon? Not sure if the old ones will come undone when I replace the rear end, it will still be an original tapered rear axle 8 3/4 setup. I know the axle housing is 3.0 inches in diameter, didn't get a length (overall or thread) or diameter of the u-bolts.

Stay clear from the "yellow" ones, they're made out of farmers iron and won't accept the correct torque without stripping the threads.
If you can't find any other, at least get some long nuts.

Definitely use the long nuts regardless.

I've got a whole box of them things just ready for the scrap bin.
How many do you want?
Most have nuts and good threads

The overall length varies with the thickness of the leaf spring pack.
