he is right some aftermarkets you have to only cut one end some you have to cut both.speeddemon383 said:You have to cut both ends. I just replaced the slides on mine. Line the hole up in the front and put a mark where it meets the rubber tip. Cut it at the mark and where they end at the back. They do that so they will fit many makes and models of sleds as far as I can tell.
ok, ill do my best...i might go into too much detail..but here goes: I kept the old slides, took the new ones(aligned on the old ones with the bolt holes in the same place..granted you are going to have overlap on the new ones simply align the holes.) and put a C-clamp on it to attach it to the original slide, or you could put them both in a vice-make sure they are even. This is done to ensure they are both stable and not going to move on you when you are cutting them. I then had a buddy cut the slide-the end with the bolt hole on it, cut even with the old one SIMPLYcut the excess off the NEW SLIDE while lined up with the old slide) with a sawzall (spelled wrong im sure) while I held it on a flat surface to steady the cut. I decided to not cut the angle but you can try if you want..best bet would be to cut the excess off first, then take the angle off of the OLD SLIDE and mark it on the NEW SLIDE..and if you can use the C-clamp or vice to hold the slide still for the cut. Hope this helps, if not let me know and Ill try to re-word some things or perhaps some other guys on here can clarify or give ya better ways...just tellin ya how I did it when I put rail extensions on. Good luck! [NeedSnow]ditchbanger24 said:well i ruined both of them. How do you guys do it? could someone explain in detail please...

cut the front of the slides to langth so the holes will line up.
then cut the back off where the rails end.
put bolts back in, done.
you want the gap between the hiphax and the plastic peace on the rail to be as small as possible.
