hi
i just install a 8in trac loc rear end
and they tell me that i have to install the driver side axle first, so misallignment of the side gear does not happen.
i can not seat the axle completely into place ,,the bearing is 3/4 inch out from placement.
i have check lenght of axle , and also check the pass side  ( THE PASSANGER SIDE FITS GOOD )
I PUT THE DRIVE SIDE INTO THE PASS SIDE TO CHECK PROPER SEAT AND BEARING SIZE ( GOOD )

I HAVE CHECKED WITH A SMALL TAPE MEASURE THE TOTAL LENGHT INSIDE THE TUBE TO THE GEAR ,,ALL IS GOOD
IS THERE SOMETHING I HAVE TO DO SUCH AS LOCK UP I WHEEL AND WIGGLE THIS IN  ????

THANX BRENT

I'm not 100% sure but I think one axle is longer than the other.  Perhaps you have two that go on one side.
