They will have a sleeved hole in the truss...Makes it just like stock but 1 corner of the ubolt will be round and the other corner will be square...

Awesome - please attach a pic or two of that when you get it ready. I want to truss the 9" in my street truck.

I'm sorry but my ubolt shop hasn't got the die yet so no pics...


We were also going to the swapmeet in Stockton but the rain report says it will be dumping rain so it was cancelled.

Do you make more than one style?
I purchased one but it will not fit my early bronco axle the truss is longer than the axle.

They are made to be cut to fit, they are made to be as long as the longest made and should be fitted up to the disc brake brackets to get the most support...

Any news on this?

I'm another interested in a top truss for use with leaf springs as well.

... I've got skills, ingenuity and no regard for maintaining any kind of historical preservation or authenticity...My Dad called that sick and wrong

We've gone a slightly different way in terms of how we are making back trusses work with Ubolts/Leaf springs.

When we are putting back trusses on one of our Fabbed 9" housings for a leaf sprung application, we've got a piece that we use to notch the back truss and leave a gap between the housing and the truss where the U-Bolts pass through. It is essentially a rectangle with coped ends to match the axle tube, that has 2 90* bends.

The part we have is coped for our 3.5" axle tubes, but could be easily modified with a grinder to work for a factory 9" axle housing and back truss.

I'll see if I can get a pic for you guys, its not something we have on the website but if you call or email the sales office when you are ordering the back truss we can add a couple of those in for you.

In terms of a top truss, with leaf springs, really the only way you can do it is have it a short truss from the top of the pumpkin and tie into the leaf spring perch on the inboard side. You could if you were feeling ambitious build truss that extends from the leaf perch outward, but that would be overkill if you want my $0.02.
