I'm looking at the ARP head stud kit with the shorter bolts (the Chevy part number) and I'm noticing the washers are much smaller in diameter than the flange on the stock head bolts. Are all the ARP washers smaller like this, or does that Chevy set have the right length bolts but the wrong size washers? I would think the washers should be about the same size as the stock bolts.

Thanks but that doesn't answer my question...

Yes they are smaller than standard head bolts. The washers are thick and fit nearly flush with the outside diameter of the nuts. I'm guessing the smaller diameter will prevent bending of the washers.
