I suggest all new bolts and u bolts... This way you can cut off the existing hardware and save a bunch of time vs. removing and re-using seized bolts. A 2.5" lift does not need any tcase drop or drop pitman in most cases.

I have the 2.5" OME 46R's, 5/8" lift boom shackles, SYE, rear shims, and a drop pitman on mine with no track or sway bars. All the extras are for improved flex and offroad reliability. I have a total lift of around 4" with great ride quality and no bad habbits on or off the pavement.

Could be the kit with extended shackles, could be doing it soa, etc.

New u bolts are always a good idea like was mentioned. Should go on without much issue with those things
