fit EA to ED studs, cutting them may weaken the studs and be uneven in weight.

You think Tempe would be more helpful, i guess cuting the ends of would be ok, where there is no thread. I think its beter than puting spacers in as well.
But be careful of the thread man (stating the obvious)
Still at a loss to think that they are too long?

Gota be p****d off but man, nothing worse than buying something that should fit, but doesnt
