I believe you, but I'm a bit shocked. I've used the RuffStuff kits many times and I've always been beyond pleased.
That is why I was also shocked. So many great reviews here on JF, that's why I went with them. That and they are a bit cheaper than their competitors.
A little shocked too.
I understand the spring perches, they are made for SOA and must be cut down for SUA.
The u bolts though is surprising.
Did you get a hold of them and tell them your problems?
Yeah, the u-bolts were really frustrating. Out of the box, one leg on two ubolts had threads that were cut incorrectly. The best way to describe it is that the threads looked "stretched" on one side. Almost a course thread vs. fine thread. A nut wouldn't even thread on them at all. I dicked with one for over an hour, cut it down, filed the threads, honed the tip, and nothing worked so I finally gave up and bought two at the parts store down the street...

I agree with TSE, did you let them know there was an issue?
I didn't know they sold an SOA/SUA kit. Their website doesn't mention this...
I called once and wasn't able to get a hold of anyone, and honestly, as I hurried to get new parts out and finish the project, I forgot about it until right now.
I was honestly displeased with every single part of the 8.8 kit they sent. Others may have had better luck, but I wouldn't buy their stuff again.
