I have to beat my yoke with a sledge to get it to slide. Trying to put my axle back in and this is the worst part of the whole job. It's a HAD shaft and I feel like I'm gonna screw up my output shaft bearing or the retainer on the t-case i got smack this damn thing so hard. any idea on whats goin on? is it hydrolocked in there or something like that?? Also, how much of the splines can be visible and still considered safe? I am trying to move the axle back an inch, but i can see about 1/2" of spline... thanks!
