Damaged Axle Shaft

I was having a hell of a time trying to get the rear outer CV back onto the rear axle shaft. The circlip was a real bitch. Using a hose clamp and a hammer didn’t work. So I took the 12 ton press to it and damaged the splines.


The sad thing is I only removed the rear outer CV to investigate which axle shaft to use. Then discovered the rear shafts were the ones.  Sigh….off to eBay to find another rear axle assy.
