RTR UCA hardware issue

Does anyone else have the rtr uca and rtr bracket?
I installed the bracket with no issues but the hole in the head of the control arm was smaller than the hole in the bracket.
The factory control arm bolt fit through the bracket but not the actual control arm.
I ended up just putting a smaller bolt in for now but it is making a clunking noise over bumps and during acceleration which I feel like is that smaller bolt moving around in the bracket.
Wondering if anyone else with this uca ran into the same issue?
I was thinking of calling rtr to see if I got the wrong part or something.

Steeda, for example, uses a smaller bolt and shims to take up the slack here. Don't do what you are doing long term, it's dangerous. I'd give them a jingle since this isn't a commonly used brand for these things.
