ya they can be a bitch sometimes ,could you spin the axle freely in the knuckle before you put the spindle on? it needs to be seated properly in the housing with the flat sides of the axle on the top and bottom hope this helps you out , let us know how you made out [cheers]

got her in there fine, couldn't spin by hand (no grip) but turned the front d shaft and it was no problem

should I worry about the c clip then?

what i've done is used a socket that just fits over the axle and put a short extension on it, give it a smack with a hammer and then you just gotta set it in the grove. it works great

ya i would put the c-clip in ,try putting the bolt and washer on the end of the axle and what i use is a large ball joint pickle fork to hook the bolt and washer and pry out the axle it works for me hope it will work for you [cheers]

The C clip is important and nessessary to stop the axle & birf from sliding in too far and fucking up the 3rd
