    :D well i thought it was funny.. but heres the question.... well at first the nuts on the spindle were grinding on the gear inside the hub. but then i fixed that for some reason they werent going down all the way.. but now the gear moves around and grinds against the spindle every now and again. and i was wondering if there is enough room between the two grooves in the axle shaft to put a snapring then the gear then another snapring???? this is on a 78 fulltime d44... or could it be that the whole shaft is moving in and out??:confused: just something that i would like to fix because i hate going to the junkyard to get these spindles but getting them for 15$ instead of 180$$out of lmc is worth it.
    well i guess i shouldhave asked if there is supposed to be something between the spindle and that gear. so ?? lol.. well thanks -sam-

    Do you have that big spring in there that pushes the gear (drive flange if I'm understanding you right) outward? It should keep it away from the spindle far enough...
