    No I haven't but it does seem from casual inspection that they could be and as you say they are relatively common. it sounded like you are planning a significant change in which case switching springs might be feasible.

    Going back to the U bolt problem, if NTG can’t oblige try sandersonleafsprings.co.uk They invite you to ask them for help with non standard u bolts.

    Have you managed to identify the source of your springs, there are many alternatives available through the Marina/Ital range.
    it is best to avoid the stronger springs unless you can match them to the different torsion bars.
    The relevant info is inevitably archived on Keepandshare for reference.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    A couple of possibilities
    Demon tweaks have extended ones for Ford - 65 mm between legs
    Sanderson Leaf springs or Owen springs both have a range of 'U' bolts ,probably worth a call
