I had trouble putting it in and out, seems like the chassis frame mount gap is too narrow and had to bang it in.
If you don't loosen it, the bolt for the PHB brace is still squeezing that bracket together a little, which is making it seem like the gap is too narrow. The axle-side bracket only has the PHB bolt, so when that's out there aren't any other fasteners squeezing that bracket together.
Did you measure your axle centering with the car weight fully on all four wheels? The LCAs are not quite parallel, so any axle offset at least theoretically affects your axle's thrust angle and will cause you to have to steer it a tiny bit to stay straight. If this is the case, and you did not touch any other rear suspension fasteners or components, your axle is probably a little too far to the right.
