Just get them all round, and use 2wd chevy rear plates ontop of your pack. That will be fine.

BUT! If you do this your going to have some steering issues with the stock droplink setup. The droplink will contact the chevy plate ontop of your spring pack. Suggest hysteer.

When I did mine I just got the kit from marlin. It had all round u-bolts with one longer one to go beside the diff. I got no idea about stock steering interference though as I never ran it. HighSteer[36]

theres a way around that. take the "j" arm off. take it to a machine shop.. or do this yourself. grind the weld that holds the ball in off. press ball out, press ball in on the top side of the j arm and weld in back in place.... thus flipping the ball on the j arm and moving the steering arm up away from the spring plates.
