I have the T-2500 kit from Snyder's for the left side shift kit taking a look at the instructions it does not mention where the second u bolt and the two collars go. Does any one have the unit and maybe pictures of the installation. I have not pulled the floorboards up yet to look it over so it may be self explanatory. But at this point it would be nice to see a picture if available.

Weather you use the pillow blocks or the u-bolts/bushings depends on the body you will use. Some have more clearance between the body and the frame. If you have enough clearance you can use the pillow blocks if not the u-bolts.

Thanks Jack, I got 2 U bolts and 2 bushings with my kit. No pillow blocks.

What a shame to drill those holes in a nice original frame! Almost as bad as drilling holes for step plates.

Larry,

My MIG welder can make those holes disappear should I ever want to. You could never tell anything was ever there. In fact that frame had 10 or more holes filled in each frame rail because someone had bolted some sort of farm equipment on top while it was being used as a trailer. I tapped each of the holes, screwed in pieces of cut off bolts, welded both sides and ground smooth to get rid of all those holes..
