Default Why is my dogbone too! short.

I was running my volcano last nite and did not know till today that My left front dogbone was missing. I searched today and found the dogbone but when i went to put it back in it is too short. My manual says it should be 88mm but is really 77mm. Is there another part that's missing? I've been running it for 10 days since i've got it. So it's not like the first time out it fell out.

They seem ok and in tact. When i match it up to the right side it is still too short compared the dogbone that has not fallen out.
