Hard to drill them out.
The dimensions are not the same.

What rear end?
Are you sure it is not a driveline angle problem?
For the dana 35 we have the yoke and seal you need for U bolts at Jeap Thrills.

yeah your driveline could be to sharp causing it to bind and pull during flex which would stretch or break your straps.

Believe its a 14 bolt and its probably a sharp angle and supposedly the parts store straps are never right so buy them from GM not from a parts store
