Why did you relocate the lower control arms?

The relocation brackets are supposed to lower the mounting point of your the lower arms to improve loading of the tires at launch.but now with the mounting point lower the axle has to swing forward to connect with stock control arms.when you do this it can cause your drive shaft yoke to bottom out on the spline of trams.

Don't know what the situation is but you need 1 1/2 to 3 degrees on the drive shaft angle and need to have a min of 1/2" to 3/4" befor the yoke bottoms out otherwise you will destroy the trans..
