Hmm... Spacers not exactly sliding on

So I got some time to test fit my spacers this morning... but they dont exactly slide on. They hit on the axel flange at the inner tapper... just barely, but enough to not let them go on. Anyone else run into this? It appears I may be able to grind down the axel flange a little to clear the inner tapper then I should be home free.

Just curious if anyone has run into this as well. Other than that I am impressed with Fred's spacers. Definently heavy duty!

Yeah you will have to grind the flange down where the axle bolts to the hub. I put mine on jack stands, took the tires off and had my wife put it in gear and ride the brakes while I ran the grinder. Took about 20 min. Don't take much so don't get crazy with it.

Well, I got them on last weekend. Ground them down just enough and spacers fit like a glove.

Sorry about the late info. Since you got them on, enjoy that wide stance. I still need to do something about them mudflaps. They look like napkins instead of mudflaps behind 4 315's.
