Steering Stab

I got the skyjacker single and i installed it where the factory one should of have been installed. the hole on the axle is larger than the one on the bracket that comes with the kit. The bushings fit snug when tightened down. My question is it should be fine installed on the factory bracket? works fine also turns left and right flawsly

It may be ok now, but as it wears and as the bolt and bushing settle and all of that, it's probably gonna start clunking back and forth as you turn the wheel, wallowing out the bolt hole, and you run the risk of shearing the bolt if you didn't use a quality high-grade one.

If it were mine, I'd weld a couple washers to either side of the hole to close it up a bit.
