New U-bolts and plates were bolted to hold the axle securely in place. A small brake-line retaining bracket was in the way of the U-bolt and needed to be removed, then everything snugged up nicely. Be sure to get the proper-length U-bolt, which depends on the spring stack, blocks, axle pad, and tube diameter. Most 4x4 shops carry an assortment of U-bolts and can easily set you up.
