Must just have been to make initial assembly easier maybe. I guess that’s why they’re pressed in studs too. The reversal on the new nuts and bolts makes a lot of sense for rock protection.It doesn’t look like it could rub anything. It would pretty much solve an obvious problem. I couldn’t figure out a downside.
They start off with studs and the kit replaced them with bolts.Ok I see now! Thanks for pointing that out didn’t notice the first time.
