bmr relocation brackets and non-adj lcas?

I have installed this combo due to me having wheel hop and also be lowering in the near future. I installed the drivers side no problem. but once I got to the passenger side got the relocation bracket in and the lca in the top hole I go to install the lca in the stock hole and it wouldt not line up. it was off by like maybe 1-2 inches. i had to force to move the axle by hand and line up the holes to get the bolt in. now my steering wheel is not centered and the car pulls to the right. did I get a messed up bracket or do I have to do something else so I wont get this problem. also this was my first time doing a install like this so I dont know if messed up but I followed bmrs instructions step by step

Find a stationary point, like the wheel well cutout on the fender on each side and measure to your axle center point. We can figure it out from there.

I agree with compstall.
Just checking, but u used the same holes on both sides, right? Also, the mid hole is the best, once lowered. If I was doing it now before lowering, I would prolly install in mid hole now so u don't have to redo it, as it really is a pain...as u know!
They are quite a bich to install. Had to man handle them to fit also. Should have the same distance between the front of the wheel well (for example).
If the distance is off, measure the lcas from eye to eye, just to rule them out.
If still not right, I would call up the vender and ask them.
GL,
Troy

I did a quick measurement of the wheel well to the tire and the left side is closer than the right side was 2"3/8 and the left side was 2"5/8. So the rear end has shifted right? Sorry but I'm new to this so just bear with me.

i did my left side first and had to pull on the wheel to get it to line up on the other side. Think i had to pull it forward just a tad.. after install my measurments were right on again.

Hmmm, a quarter inch off.not sure if that is critical. When u installed them, did you tighten the relo brackets first...before you put the lcas in? Maybe they are a bit loose and not cinched up tight to the frame??? Measure the side to side of the rear wheel too. Maybe that is off a bit and exasserbating this??? If it is off much, maybe get an adjustable panhard bar next. Gonna need it when lowering anyway.

The body was on jack stands. And a Jack was under the rear end.

The adjustable panhard was next with my springs and I did this while on jack stands that's what I meant. Also the quarter inch is what my steering wheel is at now. And it cause it to pull to the left on a straight road

May have missed this. But if you're lowered u need an adjustable panarm bar. I'm not lowered.

I checked the inside of the wheel well to the middle of the tire and the left side it's at 7 inches and the right side is at about 7 1/2 so I think it defiantly shifted a bit when I installed everything

This is a known problem at BMR. They recently redesigned the relocation brackets to resolve this problem on the passenger side. I had the exact same problem and my steering wheel was slightly off as well. Call BMR and talk to Kelly, as he can talk you through the procedure to correct it.

Sounds like it's time to revise the installation instructions.

This is true. I forgot, but I ordered mine in November and it looked different than their website pic of it. I called and asked, and was told they are the new style.
