This is not possible with these saddles. The bolts go through the factory perches, then the new saddle, then the spacers then the base plate however using the shorter bolt means we cannot get the bolt through the base plate.AstroWill said:bolts go through the holes in the factory perches, then the spacers are installed, then through those two holes in the above saddles towards the inside of the axle, then through the backup plates.
What about without the rubber isolators? Also, the locating holes for the center bolt in the leaf springs should line up, are the lined up on the leaf spring?AstroSharpy said:...however using the shorter bolt means we cannot get the bolt through the base plate.
