Thanks for the response. I ended up stopping by the hardware store to buy longer bolts for the front and back and it sort of worked that way. I got the bolts all tightened down good with rack and grab handles on, but they are still touching and sort of jammed together. Thinking about it the 1/4" spacer is probably a better idea if that's enough to keep that contact from happening. Oh well too late now I guess, there are already gashes in the rack and handle from where the contact is.
