Default HELP! WTF!? Strut Swap- halfshaft has apparently disengaged in tranny???

So I'm doing a spring and strut swap, and reinstalling my first of four KYB AGXs. As I go to reinstall the two mounting bolts, the bottom one lines up, I go to align the camber top bolt and it doesn't want to go within an inch of the hole. At first I think maybe I compressed the strut housing a bit too far in the vice while installing the springs, but after closer measurement...and a fair bit of banging, yelling, WTFing, pushing, and more banging, I realize that it is in fact the driveshaft coming out of the tranny that is keeping the knuckle from going back straight!? I try to spin it a bit and realign the driveshaft so it will "pop" back into the transmission with no luck!?

What the hell? I've done this job at least four times and have NEVER had an issue like this. Has anyone had this issue? Any easy fix? Thanks guys!

Okay so little update- Jumped in the car with it on stands and it will still send power / spin the hub that won't go back in... What in the **** is going on inside my transmission / driveshaft?

PS- front passenger wheel.

well with enough steering, gearing, and small tweaks I was able to get it back and set...weird. Still don't know what the heck that was all about.


Pointless thread / closed!
