Odd problem

I bought the Massive Omni kit for my 09. Installed it with Racelands, following the directions to the T. Last night coming home she starts pulling to the right hard. I realize I have a flat and make it home without damage. After taking the wheel off, I see the omni kit bushing has been pushed through the knuckle. I have since readjusted it and retightened everything. We torqued the holy behind the knuckle to 80 Ft-lbs as the directions said but somehow the bushing came loose. Cause the tire to rub and wore down the inside wall to the point of making a huge rut and thus a hole. Gonna put on the donut for today to get to Town Fair Tire and get the new one, but I'm pissed and more so puzzled as to how that happened.

Oh yeah they helped. Called and told I'd be called back in 20 mins. 5 hours later and nothing. Emailed and nothing.

ive heard previous versions of racelands had issues with fitting in the knuckle, any issue there? The flat tire wasnt related to the omni-kit/racelands, correct?

(not sure i have seen the omni actually installed, so i am not sure how it actually fits there)

No it fits nice and they're holding up well. Again, I know they're cheap and whatever but this car is high mileage and I won't have it for longer than 2 more years. I'm just pissed I did everything they said and I had to spend $135 on a new tire.

Should I call Massive again today? Still haven't gotten a response other than the lady on the phone who said I'd get a call back but never did. It's kind of a serious issue, right?

Have you pm'ed him? I've heard of racelands having strut diameter issues before, but that was a few yrs ago.

Talked to Karl, he's gonna send me new bushings and bolts. Says he never heard of it happening before, as many of you haven't either. g sucks it costs me a tire but hopefully this works out. Otherwise I'm screwed cause I'll have to put the stock suspension back in using a hand jack by myself hahaha

Also, right front strut seems to be really close to the tire almost rubbing whereas the left has a bit more room. Got it aligned and everything but still the issue remains. Any suggestions?
