That or just weld some thick wall pieces of tube to the sides of the axle tube. Then weld a plate on top for the bump.

Just make damn sure you have the pinion angle right before you start welding it all up.

Something like this. I have done this before and gusseted it with a bump stop pad gusset and it worked great. I would do that for sure as well. Grade 8 bolts are strong and easy to replace where u-bolts you should replace after every time they are torqued down.

Psssst I also make a super easy to install u bolt eliminator kit for 2.5” wide springs. Welds right below your stock spring perch so you don’t have to deal with figuring out pinion angle. You lose 1/4” of bump travel, though. A fair trade off in my opinion

I like that a lot! When I designed mine I wasn’t sure about the leverage and load the spring plate would see on just welding it to the bottom of the axle. Since the forces on the axle are trying to pull them apart from each other. Being spring under. I built this one to capture the whole axle. Using .25” wall tubing to capture the 5/8” bolts. Lil overbuilt but I don’t think it will hurt it.

Hah! I don’t think it’s much of an issue. The ruffstuff ones put the same type of load as mine. But yeah yours are beef lol

True, I don’t think the RuffStuff were designed initially for a spring under application, pretty sure for a spring over where the spring it being forced down on the axle.
