Maintaining Your U-Bolts

To maintain your U-Bolt, we recommend that you use a deep nut and thick washer. We sell these separately in store and online. Your U-bolt should be retightened within two weeks or sooner, depending on usage or weight of loads. If your truck carries a lot of loads every day, you should tighten the U-Bolts after one or two days. This can be done on the ground, with a load on the vehicle by hand using a torque wrench. It can also be done in a pit, with an air gun that is heavy enough to do the correct torque setting.

Dangers of Mishandling U-Bolts

You can overtighten a U-Bolt. This action can be as detrimental as not tightening the bolts hard enough. We also recommend that you do not re-use your old U-Bolts. If you were to reuse an old U-Bolt, there could be an issue with their retightening abilities. The nut tends to grab the old threads, and these threads have been weakened because of exposure to road conditions such as salt and moisture.
