Default What's wrong here? FXT diff/ 01 RS axles

I installed a FXT rear differential on my 01 RS, figuring I could use the same axles (VLSD, VLSD)...

However, I have a gap on either side... is this normal?

Did you give them a good whack to see if the clips on the axle stub haven't seated yet?

It looks like the C-Clips on the end of the axles haven't seated in yet. Tap on the end of the axle with a big rubber mallet to get it seated, or at least see if it's seated.

If they're still attatched to the hubs, that's not a big deal. Just undo and remove the big bolt that holds the hub to the lateral links, and then give the hub a good shove. THat should clip the rings in. You might have to loosen the other two lateral link bolts so that they will fall down out of teh way, but after you get that big bolt removed and undone, you've got alot of sliding room.

All I did was took a long 2x4, long enough to brace up against the axle and come out the wheel well, then hit it with a rubber mallet. Popped them right in.
