Looking for u-bolt cap

Have a friend doing a Dana swap and he needs the u-bolt cap/plate for the drivers side of the axle. I told him about my problems trying to get ahold of one so anyone with one or know of one please let me know. Thanks

can he just turn the u-bolts over and use the ones from a dodge?

I am still running a sterling 10.25 but I flipped my u-bolts over so I could mount my traction bars to them.

No he cant because it is for the front axle and theres a ridge on the axle that prevents from doing that.

Ford stopped making them a couple of months ago and I called the only dealerships in the US (which was only three) back when I did my swap and they were already gone. It's not the plate the shocks mount to it goes on the bottom of the axle so the u bolts can pull against the axle.
