Check with your local spring shop or commercial truck shop. They'll have everything you need and should be the cheapest place. You can get your U-bolts there as well. Not positive but I think you may need a 3/8" center pin.

Stock is 5/16",most after market springs are 3/8".It doesnt really matter since you will be stuck using stock unless you want to try and drill out the stock leaves!

A good drill bit and take your time = drilling out is no problem. Just don't overheat the bit.
