    Ok so most of the bolts I got the right sizes, but for the (2) 5/16 – 18 x 1.75 and the 28 5/16-18 x 1.25, my local hardware store didn’t have these lengths so i got them in the next size up (the 2 inches for the 1.75, and the 1.5 for the 1.25) I know they are cheap but I’m on an almost zero flex budget, so these are what i got. I have a metal grinder and was planing on taking of a quarter inch of each. So the question is, should I bother cutting them? Will the extra length on these ones make a difference? or maybe they will only make a difference on a few and i can save some time and only cut like half of each. Either way I just need the opinion of someone who can look at these bolts in place.

    You should be fine. The 2″ might need to come down but probably not.

    On the 1.75″ bolts I couldn’t find any locally and had to run 2″. I just had to put them in different directions in the middle section or they would hit.
