Problem with Steeda rad support

Wanted to shave 10 lb off of my front end. Installed Steeda lightweight rad support on my 2012 BOSS. Cannot fit radiator on Steeda support with rubber isolators installed. It barely fits without them. Do you think it would be fine just leaving the rubber isolators off. Do not really want to elongate Steeda rad support hole.

When I installed mine I made up some spacers from either 1/8 or 1/4" steel strip (can't remember which) to put between the Steda support and the body mounts. This also improved clearance between the sway bar and the stock oil cooler coolant ports.
 
I took some measurements and sent them to Steeda. It turns out the Steeda rad support needs to be widened by about 5/8" to fit my radiator. Waiting on engineering for a reply. Probably got one that was welded on the wrong jig.
