UBolt spacers

OK, just installed by TSB AAL, and the U-bolts are NOT long enough. I was able to seat the bolts without using the spacers that were already installed. I have to Tow 400+ miles this weekend, and will probably not be able to replace the Ubolts with longer ones.. do you think that would be a problem?

Thanks,
Sam

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

If you dont have the bolts fully seated on the threads, its not a good idea to haul/tow anything. Or drive it.....You really need to get the correct size U bolts.

I have also heard from a few machanics that you should always replace the u bolts when you add a leaf regardless if the stock ones are long enough to re-use.

They are fully seated with slight thread above the top, but without Washers.
