I went out into our warehouse and measured a Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13340 and found the distance from the bolt hole center to bolt hole center was 36-1/2 inches. Check out the picture I attached to see this measurement.

If you measured from the inside of the bolt hole to the inside of the other bolt hole and came up with 36 inches you should still be fine since the bolt holes are slotted for extra flexibility when installing this hitch.

Sometimes hitches can get slightly bent during shipping and this can be fixed by bending the hitch back into place as long as the hitch only has a slight bend to it. Some people will use open steps for leverage, vices and even car jacks to apply controlled force to bend the hitch back.

You will want to look for flaking paint and physical stress marks on the hitch before and after you attempt to bend the hitch back. If you see any of those signs on the hitch you should not use the hitch on your vehicle as it has been fatigued to the point of not being safe to use.
