U bolts from Grainger were just zinc plated, I would go with stainless. Here is the ones I sell: https://www.mscdirect.com/product/82687955

Same specs 2" wide 3/8-16 thread.

the ones I got are 9/16 thread and are not stainless but really how often is the trailer in the water. I saw those and I did not trust the 3/8-16 size, nothing against what you sell.

another option is to buy the lifting blocks and u-bolts from california trailer. I tried to find springs with different height but could not readily find any so I bought new springs with same curve as original which gave it a little lift and then added the blocks. I was having problem with the prop guard hitting the driveway every time I pulled it out of the garage. Cal trailer was the only place I could find lifting blocks on line that indicated they would work with the mastercraft trailer.

I have always gone to a place that replaces springs or sells them (not a box store). When I was a diesel mechanic we brought a representative sample of what we needed. For example round top, square top, diameter and length. They would bend them up for us right there on site. Mutual Wheel in Rockford, Illinois used to do this. Ask a heavy truck repair place where you could get U-bolts bent for your application. Easier then looking on dozens of websites trying to find a perfect match.
