    im almost done w/ the whole axle swap/lift and i have run into yet another problem, the center pin for the passenger side is a bit too big for the hole in dana60. wat do i do? take the axle off and make the hole bigger? just say f--- it and bolt it on? the thing goes in somewhat just not completely. please help cause the driver side is all bolted up and i dont wanna take the thing back off again.

    thanks,

    I just encounter the same problem with my recent lift. I took my Dremel tool and used a cylinderical shaped grinding wheel and ground the inside of the hole in the 60 and the pin itself just slightly. I ground carefully and they fit like a glove. It took less than a minuet on each side.
