Trimming rcv inner axle shaft

Any one ever had to trim the end off their d60 rcv inner axle shafts for proper fitment? They shafts are OEM replacements but are longer then standard shafts by over 0.5". The spline on the long shaft is longer then the short shaft by the amount that is required to be trimmed, is this on purpose??

I had to trim the outer shafts because they were hitting the hub dials. I know itís not the same but I did ask on here and trimming them was the answer.
Call RCV and ask though before you commit to cutting though.
