I broke one of the four knuckle bolts as I was finishing up my birth job. I replaced the bolt with one of the new style bolts, shown here.

I installed this new bolt with the short side in, once its properly torqued to the right spec, it still sticks out more than the other bolts. My question is, should it stick out more than the other bolts?

i'd say that stud is way too blurry. I would return it and get one that is in focus. looking at that stud will eventually give you a headache unless you get bifocals.

I know, thats the best pic I could take. Need a macro lens to take better pics. but you can tell how much the bolt sticks out.

victor, Dan already answered your question. You could also compare the new stud to the old stud visually. Presumably it is longer or has shorter threads where it seats. I canb't tell which from the photo.
