Any idea on where to find them? They are recommended by John Calvert (Cal-trac bars) but in the 5 years I've had my Caltrac's, I've never been able to find the clamps. The ones I've envisioned are small U-Bolts, maybe 3/8" diameter that will go over a 2 1/2" spring and be about 2" long with a piece of 3/8" x 1" bar for backup. However, I've never seen these or the bar clamps you mentioned...
