I am installing new front suspension on my van today and i put the new front axle in before the knuckle as it seemed like there wouldnt be room to put it in later.
now i dont have enough space above the axle to get a socket on the uca ball joint to torque it.
so i decided to try and take the new axle back out a different way and it slid to about the end of the stub in the diff but now something is holding it in.
any ideas whats going on here? i am worried.
edit: i beat on it a little hard and it pulled
the stub out of the diff. now i need to separate them and reinstall the stub
