That sucks but rather minor in the big scheme of things. Does the "etc." part of the equation mean it's time to :beer: ?

I know it’s minor, but with a Memorial Day deadline looming, 2 1/2 years of driving back & forth to Wheatland, and the reduction of peace-of-mind this brings (when will another hose let go?), my equanimity is less than it could be.

“Etc.” means something like “on and on...” or “yada, yada, yada...”

Springs installed:

The only fly in the ointment was this choice touch IH included:

A combination-threaded stud. Why even bother with fine threading on the spring end? Good grief.

Needless to say, we did not reuse that stud, and we couldn’t use the two Alcan provided, so an expedient was found and will be employed until a suitable replacement stud can be sourced.

I’m not overjoyed with how it turned out, all things (passenger-side) considered.

No, Matthew; my truck has its front differential offset so far to the passenger side that it uses a combination of a u bolt & two studs to secure the spring to the axle:

That stud is the rear one in the above pic. I should have been clearer explaining that.

Oh I see. What a pain.

Yeah— Alcan doesn’t stock anything with a coarse thread, and I haven’t found anything online but allthread (which I’m not comfortable with using in that application) so it has the remaining stud and a grade-8 bolt holding it together for now.

Times like these I can’t help believing IH means “intermittent headache“.

Meanwhile, I like the reduced stinkbug look the new springs have brought, and the progress with the doors, mirrors, and weatherstripping:

And I got a little trim work done on the back:

All of mine had bolts instead of studs,but studs make more sense.Find a spring shop,they make U-bolts so they should be able to make you new studs.

I'm pretty sure mine had bolts as well....I dont think it had ever been messed with..but you never know
the stud may be a big truck thing...but they also make grade 7 and 8 allthread... we use it at work all the time to make the long studs we need on our piping...based on pipe specs

Hauling springs in the car looks like something that I would do HAHA. Love ALCAN, he was just getting started there in my hometown growing up, still have the springs under my '47 flat fender that he did in 1985.

IH = Internittant Headache , thats a keeper !!

Have you looked at Stengle Bros? They have all kinds of fasteners. I don't have a link but you should be able to source it. Another thought is what was suggested, and old time spring shop. I had custom uBolts made up at Nashville Spring a few years ago, he's a bit cranky but knows his stuff. If you have the specs ask him to make them and Ill pick them up for you.

The new arrangement, after attempting to re-torque the remaining stud (the nut had bound up beyond 90 ft/lbs, so I backed the nut out & the stud followed):

The reason the nut bound up became clear after the stud came out:

How do you bend them like that?

Maybe it’s like what inside a hot dog— don’t really want to know.

I checked McMaster & a couple other online sources, and 9/16 Gr 8 allthread isn’t available.

Thanks buddy! I’m going to see if these bolts want to back out, if so, I’ll get back with you on a couple of studs.
