    ok so the question is

    is the stretch from using a torque wrench,
    and it got stretched later in use ?

    or you didn't use a torque wrench and wailed on it ?

    Good question. Definitely used a torque wrench. Noticed the bolt in question felt odd when I was fastening it into place. Removed the bolt set to find the following on a new stem...
