Hey Chris,
Glad to see you finally rounded them up and put them in.  Slight difference,

In response to your question... I can't tell you for certain because I've
never had one inspected.  But I can tell you of my DOT experiences.  I
managed a fleet of several hundred trucks for Roadway Express in Chicago for
about 6 years.  It has been my experience that DOT inspectors really know
next to nothing about vehicles.  I would have to routinely have our shop
repair and sign off DOT warnings and/or violations.  Most of them exhibited a
lack of knowledge that was laughable.  I even received a violation (+
substantial fine) for a hydraulic brake fluid leak... on a semi... with
pneumatic brakes.  Hmmm.

So, to make a short story long, I wouldn't sweat it for a minute.  They will
almost certainly have absolutely no idea that you've changed anything.  If,
by chance, you run into the Big Kahuna Inspector... claim ignorance.  "I
dunno, I got it this way".  He'll drop it.  It would require work to figure
it out.
