That was probably an adjustment for camber that you were not aware of. 1 of the bolts (usually upper) when you rotate it moves the hub angle. So try redoing it to get proper angle.

Your only aligning camber(tilt) so just watch strut as you turn bolt head and when it tilts in the most lock it down and replace wheel and see if it's right. Make sure you have the bolts in right hole since only 1 has camber head and that goes in top.
