Hello, I was doing my rotors and brake pads and I have never done rotors before so I was watching your video on YouTube and was following it the control arm popped out with a flat head just like it did in the video, but when it came time to put it back in I noticed that there is a tilt in the control arm the left side lines up with the pin hole, but the right side is only halfway lined up. I tried to take channel locks and turn it but it would either fall out from in between the pin holes or would tilt right back to old position. I been at it for three hours now and I am not sure what I am doing wrong or what to do to fix this. Is there anyone there who could give me some pointers or tips on what to do? Please and thank you.

You may be trying to put the rear arm in backwards. Picture shows how it is supposed to go on. Torque is 101-115 ft. Lbs.

Never took it fully out just one side so I can replace the rotor.

If you are talking about holes for a cotter pin to go through then it has to be tightened to do that. Or it may not be lining up because of wheel dropping down to far and shock is disconnected.
