Can someone else confirm that the stock Kraton V3 bolt that ties the rear bulkhead to the rear chassis brace should fit right through the upgraded rear GKA chassis brace hole? I'm having an issue with a brace that GKA just shipped to me where the thread of that long bolt fits through but the long shoulder portion does not. Pictures attached to show how far the bolt will fit in.

I can drill this out with a drill press but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't getting the assembly wrong somehow before I irreparably modify this part

It's a tight fit but should go all the way in. Try a little bit of lubricant and see if it goes in, if not you'll have to drill out to the proper diameter or return to GKA

Thanks! I drilled it out with a 4.0mm drill bit (that really measures out to 3.97mm). The diameter of the stock bolt shoulder is tiny bit smaller.

I have an HR rear brace that was like that. I had to drill it.
