You may want to loosen the cross member bolts on each side and then using a pry bar shift the cross member to line up the bolt holes. You can also put in an alignment punch into the hole and bracket to move the two to align the hole to install the bolt. Once both bolts are in and tight then tighten the cross member bolts.
