I have a pair of Lakewood traction bars that I'm going to put on my 65 comet. They're the one's that replace spring plates. I have the 8" axle that necks down toward the end, and because of that the stock U-bolts are too narrow. They give me a part no. for new bolts that fit but they are just wider U-bolts, I don't know if it's right with slack on the sides of the axle. Is it necessary for the bolts to be tight around the sides of the axle? Should I just put them on with bigger bolts or drill out the plate a little to make the stock ones fit?
