I've got the steering rack set and the top arm jacked up so I can get the hub back into the top and bottom arms, but when I put the CV joint through the axle I then can't get the hub into the top axle, it's sitting about 3/4" away from the hole.
It's as if the axle is too long. I've had the CV joint off and as far as I can tell it's back on properly, should there be any spline sticking out the back of the joint, how should that sit there? The other one went on perfectly, but I really don't want to have to strip that axle down again to check how that one's sitting.
Can I keep smacking it without breaking anything at the pot joint end?
Got to get this car to the garage by tomorrow to save paying for a second MOT, so any tips and tricks please share!
