Smittybilt Nerf Bars on a CJ5

Just received a set of Smittybilt Nerf bars for my '78 CJ5 I'm rebulding. Lined them up where I think they should go and to get them running even with the body the front mount is about 1.5" away from the frame. I have the back mounts lined up right above the rear spring mounts and just in front of the body mount. This leaves the front mounts in front of the forward body mount and the bars nicely covers the bottom of the front fender. Has anyone else has problems mounting these bars? Do I have them in the correct place? 1.5" seems a little too much to shim up. I'm afraid the torque on the bolts could really cause some problems.
