    Ight so I just finished my swap (really this time [well kinda]), Anyway I couldn't get the passenger side axle in without removing the snap ring (lockring). It just won't go in with it, Am I missing something, is there a trick to it. I really dont like the fact that it pops out EVERY time I take a sharper turn. BTW it was a new axle with a new snapring.

    You don't have to bump after just an hour, someone will get to it. There is no trick, it's called putting some ass into it.The passengerside is kind of a pain in hte ass, but you just gotta slam it in there.

    put the axel nut on the threaded end, and with a rather large rubber mallet, hold it with one hand and hit the axel hut with the hammer. Pound it while keeping it as straight as possible. Hit it like a man and it will go it.

    Just got home with a brand new rubber mallet, I'll let you guys knw how it goes. Even if I do break it, lifetime warranty against any kind of breakage (best stock $75 axle out there).
