    Jaye it’s the long blue spring over the long silver cad part that threw me off . Your picture made me fine it out. Every other picture terrible. And I am terrible mechanic.

    Do you think I just need the clamps. Is that gonna be tight after tightened?

    Looks correct. It looks like the u-joint caps have the c-clips on he inside,which centers the u-joint not the yoke. I think the u-bolts are all that you need. I’ll get them sent.

    Sorry for hacking you thread but, why are you using different rear control arms with the chevy 12 bolt? are these different from a BOP 10 bolt?

    I have used 10-bolt upper arms with a 12-boot,and not had any issues,but I have seen where the ends of the Chevy arms are cut different than the 10-bolt arms.

    Yes,there was a reinforcement on the sides of the 12-bolt uppers arms. When looking at the open end of the arms,where they mount to the rearend,one style is dimpled-down,and the other style is left straight or more open.

    Yes that’s why I welded plate on the one side. Because it was trimmed for clearance issues. I guess the plate gives it more strength. When you are removing metal
