Thru axle length

So, having determined the size and thread pitch of the thru axles I need, I'm struggling to find one which is the correct length. The front (measured from the base of the bolt to the end of the threads) needs to be 117mm and the rear 160mm. Having looked around, the Brand X range seem to come closest to what I need, but the lengths available are just a tad too long (theirs being 125mm and 166mm). My question is does it need to be exact length or can spacers be purchased to put behind the bolt?
