U bolt size

This may be a dumb question, but I'll ask anyways.

I plan on dropping my truck around 2" since that seems to be the best mix of easy and effect. I know that I need 2" lowering blocks for the back to do this and will have to replace the U bolts. But what size U bolt do I need?

Also, the write-up says I need some deep sockets to do it as well, what size socket do I need?
