Pull that big ass bolt out from the rear hub/ lateral links and use the hub to jam it back in. A jack under the hub after u have it on jack stands makes it SO much easier.
You mean the one that threads through the hub perpendicular to the axle? I was going to remove the axle and reseat it. That would give me the chance to check to make sure the clip is still intact.
