Default Help in identifying some early V8 parts

I acquired these as part of a pile o' parts deal and was hoping that someone on here with smarts can tell me what model year these are from. Thanks in advance.

Just in case someone's interested, the u-bolt plate (top left in pic) is 1932-34. Not sure about the u-bolts yet.

The squared off u-bolt with the nipple on the inside of the U is for a '32-'34 rear spring.

David G, thank you ! Is the bracket also '32-'34? And wouldn't there be 2 each of these for the rear spring ?

The one on the u-bolt is on upside down if you are interested in that.

The flat piece with the oval hole in the center and four round holes on the corners fits under the front spring on 1932-34 Fords and is used in conjunction with the two rounded U-bolts. Yes, two of the squared-off U-bolts are required for the rear spring.
