  • New Product - UBolt Eliminators from T&T Customs, Inc.



    Lifting a vehicle that's leaf sprung in the rear can be a challenge. Gaining 4 or more inches to balance out the front can push you into a rear spring with some serious arch in it to get the lift needed. We at T&T Customs, believe we've come up with a more viable solution: The Ubolt Eliminators.

    This kit replaces your stock spring pirches with a trick new way to compliment a leaf spring with less arch in it. We have models in 0-inch, 3/4-inch and 1 1/2-inch flavors. All three kits share the same characteristics:
    • Wide design helps with wheel hop
    • Offset center pin holes allow for 1 or 1.5-inch differential offset to adjust your wheelbase
    • U-bolts are eliminated so they don't hang down below axle centerline
    • Install gives you opportunity to adjust your pinion angle and ditch those degree wedges
    • Integrated bump-stop pad to work with stock bumpstop (XJ/MJ) or your custom application
    • CAD designed and CNC Cut
    • Kit comes standard with high-clearance shock re-location tabs to get them out of the weeds.
    • Kit ships with all hardware necessary for install.
    • Call for Custom Applications


    Application Example: When building a Jeep XJ with ~6.5" of lift there are only two options for getting the rear suspension to that height: 1) ~3" spring with a lift block or 2) a 6" spring. Lift blocks are generally not recommended

    We know this kit works, we have customers running them in vehicles Ranging from a Jeep Scrambler with 700+hp and 40's to an XJ with a stock 4.0L.

    Place orders using Visa, Mastercard, or Discover by calling 307.775.YLNK.

    Or a 4.5 inch spring with a 1.5 inch block or a lift shackle. I've read your post 3 different times and I have NO idea what product you are selling. Other then some kind of u-bolt gettingridderof'r. Got any pics? I'm lazy and dont want to click the link you provided. Thanks.

      It is basically a fancy spring perch--made in various heights to accomplish small amounts of lift w/o the use of blocks. It does nothing to address the axle wrap issue seen when running tall blocks, but you won't have to worry about spitting the blocks out. I am not sure about the way they clamp the leaf spring between the perch and spring plate. If the top plate bends at all, you could lose the pressure on the spring possibly allowing it to shift. It better be a damn thick plate.

      Price is soon forgotton, quality is not.

        Now that I think about it a little....that top plate probably isn't as big of a deal as I initially thought. But, another concern that comes to mind is the welds between the perch and axle tube. If you lose those, you will lose your axle. With traditional u-bolts, you will be able to limp home with just the bolts holding the axle to the spring.

          Wow...too lazy to follow the link?

          This is really a spring perch that has lift built into it. It welds to the housing like a spring perch and has an upper plate that works with the stock bump-stop location. Here's the 3/4-inch lift UBE's getting installed on an 8.8...

          If you're by the shop we'll see if we can't get a group together and do a snow run. The club up here is all about motor and tire...for sand and snow. The rocks are for the slow times during the summer.

              Why would axle wrap become any more of an issue? Everything stays the same EXCEPT you eliminate the U under the axle.......Nice units, keep up the good work.....BJ

                Assuming spring rate stays the same, you will get more axle wrap as you move the spring farther away from the axis of rotation (centerline of the axleshafts). It does not matter if you move the spring with blocks, taller spring perches, or any other device.

                  Agreed- With the 0 lift units axle wrap should be the same. with the lifted units wrap would change. Am I on the right track? B.j.
