Finishing up rebuilding front sas axle, possibly from an 84. It already had factory lower gusset. Installed longfields. Putting the manual hub on reveals that the axle shafts dont stick out far enough to allow the c-clip to fit on the end of the shaft. I have used a slide hammer try and pull them out further.( At request of factory tech) They do not move whatsoever. When performing the clearance of the inside of the knuckle, there never was any rubbing. I didn't have to grind anything away. Even now in all steering positions both sides rotate freely by hand without any issues. No binding. Any ideas? They also don't push in more than 1/16" if I try and push them back toward the diff.
