    the kit only has one washer per bolt, but the instructions say one on each side of bolt.so do the write ups on the kit. whats the deal? should i just use one? which side? or borrow a car and go buy more washers? why did i just get one?

    Prolly just a miscount. You can either call stephen at ORD and he will make it right, or just run to the store and get a couple /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I remember something about this. I think Steven said to use the washer on the back side of the frame, and nothing on the front, since the bracket is so thick. There used to be 2 washers for every bolt, but now just 1. Mine only came with 1 per.

    Search in ORD I think that is where the post is. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah, there was a thread about it on the ord forum. used to be 2 per bolt... now they ship with one. Its no biggie since the bracket side doesnt need a washer... but since the brackets came with such a nice finish, I bought some washers so it wouldnt get tore up when I torqued the nuts down etc.
