I am trying to mount a 75" TV in my basement, and upon initial investigation, the studs behind the drywall are mounted "sideways". Sideways as in the 3.5" side is facing the wall meaning that I only have 2" of wall through the drywall and the stud itself. Ideally the studs would have the 1.5" side facing the wall which would give me closer to 4" to drill the screws into. Giving that I only have 2", can I simply use the same screws that came with the mount (60mm lag bolts) and drill those through the wall and stud or do I need to get something smaller so the screws do not protrude?
I am assuming having 2" of wall is sufficient to support this mount and TV as well?
