Just recieved my tow brackets from road master for my 93 Saturn SL2. Read the instructions, then began installation. (yes men do on occasion read instructions) The last thing I am supposed to do is locate the two holes in the frame that correspond with the two holes at the rear of the bracket. What two holes I've got a half of a hole in the front one and the next closest hole is 3 inches away. Going to have to drill out the front and create one in the back. Same on the other side. Anyone else run into this? Is this common?

I suggest you call Roadmaster and ask about the missing hole(s). I had a somewhat similar experience with my first Tracker and fortunately decided to take a break before starting the drilling. Something kept telling me that maybe I should look again before deciding I was right and the instructions were wrong, so I took the ill-fitting bracket out and reconsidered. Turned out I had it aligned wrong and there was indeed a hole where it needed to be.

But I won't try to tell you the instrctions are always right either...
