The spring bolts you will want to use should be 9/16 by about 4 1/2, as for the U-bolt's i would personally recommend getting some custom ones since these trucks could have came with a few different leaf springs according to spring code. Granted the U-bolts should be close to the same measurements but by getting custom ones made it will ensure they fit properly. You can find a couple links to some spring bolts and U-bolts below :

U Bolts : http://www.sdtrucksprings.com/u-bolt...r-leaf-springs

Hope this helps

U-bolt specs for a 28spline truck with stock blocks should be 1/2" rod, 3" inside width, 10" inside height, round bottom or forged round bottom.

U-bolt specs for a 31spline truck with stock blocks should be 1/2" rod, 3 1/4" inside width, 10" inside height, round bottom or forged round bottom.

Many bump up to a 9/16" rod size though given the longer 10" length.
