My Axle seems to be bottoming out with 1/4 of space between the outer axle tube flange and the backing plate. I can feel it slide into the splines in the diff and can feel the diff rotating when I turn the hub but I can't get it to close the gap. I've tapped it with a sledge hammer and put some clamps on it to draw it in but no go. Do I need to put more pressure on it to shove the diff back to the other side more? Don't want to force anything.
