Sky arms and Chevy tre not playing nice with each other

I have Sky mfg high steer arms... These ones... http://www.sky-manufacturing.com/new...duct.php?id=67... They are supposed to accept 7/8" GM 3/4 ton tre. I have GM 2234 tre's which are supposed to be 7/8" and are what Sky calls for. My problem is they don't seam to fit. I've posted 2 pics below showing the fit. That is all the tighter I can get them without using a cheater bar. Before I do that I thought I would post here and see if anyone thinks the sky arms are not tapered correctly for the tre's I have?

When I try the 2234 tre's in the factory hole of the lower steering arm they bottom out and fit fine. So I'm thinking sky may have sent me the wrong arms???

Just wondering what everybody else thinks?

It's just a dust boot.
The Chevy's probably have a deeper taper.
If a cotter pin goes through the castle nut smoothly, It's good to go.
When you grease the tre, The boot will probably swell to take up the extra space.

The cotter pin does indeed slide in easily. I guess I'll just grease them and go. Thanks for the help.
