Something doesn't sound right, I have the same short spacers (no washers) and the hitch is centered behind the rear tire, did you get the "triangular mounting plate? how do the rear crossbars line up?
Is it possible that the bar itself is bent? doesn't sound likely.
I have called and spoken with John Preston (ceo of Bushtec) personally a couple of times, he's a very knowledgeable and helpfull guy who didn't mind talking (at length) with me regarding his product, there's also the Bushtec forum.
