Unit bearing shim

Just put a set of rcv axles in a dodge 2nd gen d60 and having a few issues with axle length. It would appear the long side unit bearing will have to be shimmed out approx .120 as the inner axle splines have bottomed out in the center. Has any one else experienced this?? Or had to space the unit bearings slightly. The knuckles do come with a shim and the rotor shield acts as a shim too.

Sounds like the RCV shaft is too long. Have you contacted RCV? Maybe you can trim the axle shaft, but for what they cost you shouldn't have to.

Agreed, for that money...they should fix their machining mistake.
