48" yakima crossbar fit

Friend gave me his 48" crossbars but I can't get them spaced out enough. Their recommended 42 3/4" on the front and 42 3/8" on back. Any suggestions?

Not sure about your question but Yakima does not have those measurements for any part of the install. M1 42 7/8" and M3 42 1/2". They do recommend 58" bars though. Clarify?

A 48" bar fits perfectly and does not leave any overhang. You may need to play with it a bit though as there is no margin for error. I actually bought a 48" and 58" bar; and, cut the 58" bar down to size - but only because I had to have 1 1/2" to mount the boat loader for my kayak.

What were your measurements between the posts? I am unable to find those as yakima does not have any on their site for our cars. Thanks
