Did you take any pictures?
I'm not familiar with Steeda's bracket. I did see somewhere after looking for relocation brackets that some people have welded it on the top to make it more solid, but am having a hard time understanding how it could rotate that far back. It's mounted to alxe and mounted to you LCA, and both are fixed points...unless you the bushings in the LCA are gone, but with only two days of service I wouldn't see how that could happen.....send some pictures.
Also, you say that your "wheel" is now an inch from the quarter panel.................side to side or front to back and do you have an adjustable panhard bar?

No, I didn't mean they needed to be welded!!!!!
When I was looking at which relocation brackets to purchase I saw on some websites that people had welded them. What did you instructions say to do????
I think I'd call Steeda tomorrow and tell them of the problem you just had and ask them for a solution.
By all means don't just go out and weld them before talking with Steeda.

Actually if he has the Steeda relo brackets, yes, they must be welded in place. Hope u didn't hurt anything. Give it a good once over once its back in the air.

Steeda- Needs to be welded.
BMR- No welding required. That's why I suggesst BMR's all the time.
