hey guys i’m trying to assemble my right front suspension and when i try to bolt by pitman arm to by control arm no matter which angle i threaded the bolts they refused to thread, however the other side threaded in fine without difficulty. he only way i can get the bolts to thread in is if i take my control arm out but when i take it out it doesn’t line up to the body anymore, so i’m wondering if it’s a personal mistake or a machining issue

Here’s a photo of what it looks like when the bolts are in but it’s not lining up

And here’s an image showing how the bolts don’t line up

i’ll say again that no matter how hard i try these two bolt holes will not light up with the control arm installed only way i can get it is if the control arm is off but when it’s off it doesn’t fit as the above picture shows so pls let me know what’s up because this has completely stopped my progress, thanks.
