Body lift problem

Hi all
Was installing a 1" daystar body lift, was all going good until I put the bushing that sits next to the gas tank in. The problem set body down and rested on all mounts but there was a 1/4" gap between rear mount and body due to the bushing next to the tank.
my thought was to place a longer bolt in and hope it squashes the bushing to get rid of the gap at the back. What's everyone's thoughts
Cheers

are you sure you have the correct bushings on the mounts? some of them are different

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

I would not leave ANY of them out! This puts extra pressure on the tub where the surrounding mounts are and can cause them to start to bust through the tub if left this way for too long.

Just my opinion, do what you want.

I would rather have a broke Jeep, than no Jeep at all.
