OME Top Spacer Bolts

I want to remove my OME top spacer.

Do you know if the longer top mount bolts that come with the spacer will fit without the spacer? Or will they be too long?

I don't have the original shorter bolts that came with the OME lift.

If not, you think I could just buy these at the hardware store?

Thanks

They'll still fit.

I put some on initially in case I wanted to add a top plate spacer later. Not much chance of that, it turns out. 885 springs fully lifted my regular cab.

So you have the Top Spacer bolts on now? Are they the ones that come with the top spacer?

Just trying to clarify since EVILSTI says they wont work.

Thanks guys

I removed my top plate spacers and the bolts had enough thread to tighten up. At worst you need to add a couple of washers under thr nut.
