You need only one or 2 threads exposed beyond the nut, when it is snugged in place.

Thanks, I may do that. I'll feel under there and see how much I can hack off. I just wonder why G.M. would waste the steel when they don't have to? Usually a car company engineers a component right down to the least they can, to save money. After all, they are probably making millions of these. I'm wondering why all the extra thread---unless it makes assembly at the plant so much easier that it's worth using the extra metal?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
