    Have any of you guys cut the bolt that sticks out of the nut once it's installed? After I installed these it seems that I'm gonna have to cut the remainder of the bolt to have some clearance. Check out the picture maybe it will explain it better.<a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/photo/24927226/25207623QrCDvCBVzA>http://community.webshots.com/photo/24927226/25207623QrCDvCBVzA</a>

    I know that these bolts are hollow, but does is it hollow where the tread is at?

    Thanks

    Ric, I know what you mean by the extra threads hanging past the nut. Most of them seem to hit the damn headers when they do. [​IMG]

    I don't see why you couldn't cut the bolt off there. I don't think the hollow hole goes any further than the middle of the bolt.

    This would be a question that needs to be posted on the "ORD" forum. Stehpen could tell you a better answer than me. [​IMG]
