Pre-bent U bolts can make your life a little easier. Every U bolt Shoreline makes is bent to order, whether from stock threaded rods or from scratch. U bolts are available bulk or in trailer kits with nuts and washers. We have the expertise and the machinery to bend standards and specials in a production setting.
Common industry bends include round, semi-round, square and Mack round. We have also made some quite uncommon bends over the years. We can bend rods as small as 3/16" diameter to ones as large as 1-1/2" round. We also stock standard forged top U bolts for suspensions such as Neway and Fruehauf. If you have a blueprint, please feel free to send it over for a quote.
The recommended minimum radius for bending our stock rods listed by diameter:
3/8" to 1/2" diameter - at least 1/4" radius
9/16" to 5/8" diameter - at least 3/8" radius
3/4" to 1" diameter - at least 1/2" radius
1-1/8" to 1-1/4" diameter - at least 5/8" radius
