tensioner arm?

Anybody else with an OBS ever have any problems with the tensioner assembly? My pulley is rubbing against both the arm itself and the bolt holding it in place. Im assuming its due to the arms bearing being warn out and putting it at an angle? Anyway, Stopped in Auto zone ( i hate that place to begin with) and Advanced auto parts and they both showed tensioner arms that were about 3 inches longer than the one I currently have. So I thought maybe the pulley im using is too big but then it wouldnt make sense for the serpintine belt they offer to fit. Im at a loss here. Any ideas?

the replacement one is designed different from the original to try to keep it from going out of alignment and rubbing on the bolt, so they look different.
