hey scott, im in the middle of a 1.8L torsen II swap and im having one hell of a time trying to figure out how to get the axles in.

i can't seem to muscle the diff side in all he way and it seems impossible to bend and flex the hub side to fit after the diff side is in....any tips ?

Scott

Hammer FTW just tap it in. Try not to dislodge the cap that seals in the grease for the CV

these axles without stubs, correct? or stubshafts?

I just beat the **** out of mine with a bfh. With the one-piece axles, you need a little finese.

whaddya mean? if you mean it looked good, so you left it on ... then pull your head out of your *** and change em because they are years old and probably gonna leak after messing around in there. If it is a new seal, you may have nicked the circumfrence of the metal that contacts the outer edge of the seal? did you put a little bit of grease on the rotating surface to keep friction down on initial use?
