Mine arrived. Beautiful pieces! The front installed very easily. I'm having some difficulty with the rear.

Did anyone else get the rear NB tow hook? The supplied thicker bolt seems too short to get enough thread engagement with the supplied nut. And the supplied skinnier bolt absolutely will not fit through the hole in the mounting bracket or the tow hook. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong?

Dear Ryoku Parts Customers,

It has been called to my attention that some of you have had some issues with the Smaller NB rear bolt on my Tow Hook part. I apologize for this as I did not check this due to my excitement with the group buy.

After investigation I have discovered that hole is physically to small for the 3/8" bolt. This is due to the new manufacture of the item. The offset of this machine is different from the one that was used before. My tight tolerances have made this now an issue. The hole should be 25/64" or 10mm

The Fix:
Drill out the hole with a 25/64" drill bit. (10mm for those outside the US) If you don't have one a 3/8" drill bit will work. Hand drilling is perfectly ok. Drilling this hole is only opening it up .03" or .05mm depending on variance. This will not affect the integrity of the part or the anodizing.


If you don't feel comfortable doing this modification please contact myself or Project G and we will further assist you on this matter.

With regards to the larger bolt and washers and threads. The rear stock hook on the NB differs from year to year. It my discovery a few years ago when I made this that at some year (maybe NB1 to NB2) the thickness of the stock hook changed. The washers are there to make up the difference for the years with the smaller rear hook. You don't really need the washers at all. The hole tolerance is tight enough that it is not needed.

Again I apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Robert Bahr

Just got mine on and they are spectacular. I did have the issue of the bolts on the rear tow hook not fitting but after 5 minutes with the drill and 3 minutes searching through my spare nuts/ bolts box, problems solved! Thanks so much for making a quality product.
