On a leaf spring set up, there are two ways of doing it, mine has the squared u bolts that go around the springs and had the rounded plates that went under the axle and the threaded end of the u bolts come through it. What are those plate things called?
I took my axle off a few years ago and had it sitting in pieces and now I can't find those, I misplaced them.
I want the ones that contour to the axle, rather than the flat ones that go on top of the spring. If I can't find those then I know I will have to have u bolts fabricated and make flat plates to go the other way.

Not the part that is welded to the axle.

Spring plates or axle plates.

The perches are what's welded to the axle tube

Got zero results for that on eBay.
This is what I'm looking for.

Except not for my truck. I've got a 2 ton truck and the rear end wasn't stock anyways, so no telling what to look for.
I was kinda hoping there would be a place I could order by specs. I know my axle is 3.665" diameter and the bolt holes from side to side need to be 2.75 to center.
I think I'm just going to have to fabricate the ones I need.

ETA the guys above me got it right. Thanks.

On mopars they are called shock mounting plates. They have a stud for the lower shock eye to bolt to and are held on by the 2 u bolts.
