Couldnt remember where I read the solution to this, had to do with disconnecting the steering shaft? Theres prob an inch of slop in the wheel now.

Other question, Im assuming with american racing headers, its physically impossible to install the back nut on the rear passenger side bolt?

You thread the bolt in the shaft from the wrong side is all. Bolt must slide into and thru the shaft into the threads. You probably start on the threaded side, felt it get tight when it locked on the threads, not clamping the shaft.
