LT install help!

So I'm in the middle of installing my Total Chaos +2 lt kit and I come to the UCA and it shows that I need to install 4 of these washers that came with the kit but the problem is the gap between the inside of the UCA and the Coil bucket isn't wide enough to install a second washer on the inside.

Any help would be nice ASAP. I'll post a picture in a second.

It WILL fit. I had the same issue with my Burg LT. I gently tapped the other washer in with a hammer, worked like a charm.

Dude it will fit. Take your time and go back to it and try. Worst case scenerio, I do not recommend, is making the shim thinner if you have a grinder at home.

The most gap I can get is only half the size of the provided washer though, I don't fell like I should have to grind one of the sides down to make enough room, but thats the only option I can really see...

Try tapping it in. I thought also it wouldnt fit but somehow it did.

Have the washer at an angle towards the bushing, then gently try to tap it in.

Don't do that. If you make it thinner it will eventually flareout, distort, or even break. Like others have said, take your time.

Hence the absolute reason I am stressing to him to take him time and get it to work the way it is. "I do not recommend"

Oh I'll be working on this all weekend. I have help coming tomorrow (when I had originally planned to start) but need to get the spindles off today to get welded tomorrow morning.

Your more then welcome to come by and help when ever you want, I'll be on this all night.

Yeah there is. Take the largest flat head screw driver you have and pry it open. Will take a bit of work but you can do it.

Alright here's an idea. Take off the Rubber red pieces, pulling a blank on what they're called haha, and throw them in the freezer along with the washers. When they get cold they'll shrink, I dont know how much hah but it might just give you enough room to squeeze the washer in.

Just an idea though
