Re: Rear multi leaf bolts
I suppose that (as an engineer) I could technically figure out the difference.
But I'll take the simple approach, if the T-bolts and U-bolts are the same diameter, and the same hardness, then the shear strength of them will both be the same.
It would however, seem that the U-bolts would have an advantage for more tensional strength since the U-bolt would have more contact area across the top of the axle, along with the forces of both ends being pulled from under the perch.
With that being the case, that extra tension could keep the axle from sliding sideways on the shock plates which would then bring the shear strength of either bolt into question.
For the small amount of $$ difference, I went with new U-bolts.
