Installing the rear bracket and spacer. I'm using the provided hardware and it seems I can't get the last bolt in due to a lack of space between the leaf spring and the axle. I was considering going to the hardware store and getting a shorter bolt. Am I installing this wrong or is there a trick to wiggle it in?

(Looks like I missed a spot when I cleaned it!)



Don't fit the other way either?!

Looks like a shorter bolt and nut on the inside is the only way its gonna work,unless you want to thread the bracket with something like a helicoil or drill an access hole through the spring bracket.

Use shorter bolts on all of the locations with the head toward the wheel and the nut and washer towards the center of the car. Use grade 8 bolts and get USA made.
