    I'll betcha that the hardware store allthread  doesn't meet the 
manufacturer's specs for bolt strength. OTOH your tower  hasn't fallen down 
lately so 
you've been lucky.

           You don't  need to bend them. Just double-nut the bottom of the 
bolt and you're good to go.  All the J does is add some pull-out resistance to 
the bolts. Double nuts will do  the same thing.
