WTF - both axles (L / R) are flush with the hub and the new bolts arent long enough to engage on either side. It's really close, but probably off by 1mm or so.Its possible for the splined shaft to pull out of its bore. the tip of the shaft should be just about flush with the end of the bore. If its pulled out a little, reach behind, grab the shaft and push it back in.
Glad to hear that it's not just me... thank you. I'll let you know how it goes with the longer bolts.I had the same exact problem with mine about a month ago. decided to just use the new bolts and take off the rubber washer.. I will attempt again with the caR on a lift, the wheels off, and a pros attempt lol. even with just the new bolt though I noticed a huge difference. Probably just with the new loctite though.
I figured there must have been a different part number for longer bolts. But I thought I followed a different thread correctly and got the same part number... let us know which bolt you end up getting so we can get it too!Glad to hear that it's not just me... thank you. I'll let you know how it goes with the longer bolts.
