The issue isn't really just the head. It's that the hole from the head end is not in alignment with the threaded end. Unless of course you slot the holes, which then weakens the apparatus.

I'm all about double drilled and studs.

To each their own. Not saying what's wrong or right,  just a comfort level thing.

I went with studs, and with the wedges on, its kind of a PIA to get the droop on (double drilled)

I cant imagine bolts being able to grab threads easily and not stripping or cross threading. But again, im running more wedge than most

Man i really need a different nozzle

That's the whole point again. Hold a straight edge across where the threads would be out to the head of the bolt.

You'll probably be shocked.

Then why would the studs bend?

Food for thought.

Lol.

Just for the record.

Studs are still stronger, the radial torque gets put on the stud,  not a threaded aluminum hole.

Especially on something that can be removed and installed as often as a droop.

I see where you're going,  but I'm a stubborn SOB.


LMAO.

Back to the thread... I finally measured my rideplate, and if i did it correctly. Im right around 4*

I just now found out how to measure in tenth's of degrees. So i need to measure it again to get a more accurate reading.
