Aluminum Front Suspension Cross Bar re-install issue

I am having a difficult struggle with re-installing the Front Alum. Cross bar, the holes on the cross bar don't want to align with the threaded hole mounts on the car.
I recall it being difficult to remove the bar initially, but the holes in the Aluminum bar are about 1/8" - 1/16" WIDER than the threaded holes on the car. The bar is not bent.
The other issue is that on the left front mount there were 2 spacers between the Alum. bar and the mounts, and on the right side there was only 1 spacer. Normal? or did someone F up the re-install at some point?
Something had to have been bent or mis-aligned at some point.
Anyone seen this before? or had this issue?

Pictures show the two spacers, the two that are attached seem to be pressed together pretty snug. even without the spacers the holes don't seem to align.

Once again any help or heckling appreciated!!

Obviously I modified the Tech Drawing for my own purposes. It DOES NOT represent original drawing in any way. Do not use this as a reference for maintenance. Yata, Yata, Yata........................
