Default figs swaybar end links

Hello all,
Ran into a little snag installing the figs endlinks. After torquing down the bolt that holds the endlink to the LCA I noticed there was a small gap between the threaded endlink cap and the LCA. I made sure I torqued to specs but there was still that small gap. I removed the bolt to see if the end of the bolt was making contact with the end of the threaded cap and sure enough the threads had been crushed a little. I decided to install some 1/2 inch washers and everything is nice and snug. Might not be an issue with all the endlink kits but for mine the bolt was a little bit too long. No big deal. Just an FYI or I could be installing it incorrectly..lol
