Bushing bolts?

I am trying to install rear cab mounts. A little history first. The cab is sitting on a blazer frame, it is an 1987 cab, but I made a support bracket to support the rear cab. I ordered a set of mounts for a 73-80 2 wd 1/2 ton. Since I made the
bracket support I thought that the size of those mounts would work out ok. Here is the problem, the bolts that came with the mounts do not thread up into the holes. Are the bolts different? Do I need to get bolts for an 87 cab? I know that the threads might be dirty up inside but I don't want to force them either.

Thanks, any more information needed let me know.

John

Re: Bushing bolts?

Never mind folks, I figured it out. I just put the bolt in and use a 3/4 ratchet wrench and took it up with very little resistant.
