I tighten them up more ( thus changing Point of Impact).. also the screws are becoming longer making the bolt hard to close. I have trimmed them both so the bolt closes..I know it is just wearing ito the Aluminum and making it worse... do you think that Loctite would fix or a small washer under the screw... appreciate all thoughts on this....
It does sound like a 'crush' problem. Pillars will solve stock 'crush', but, ya' can't fix aluminum (pot metal) with Locktite. Time for some of that 'milled steel' bottom metal if that's where your problem is.
