So the back right drive shaft came out of the Diff and the C clip stayed in there. I put the shaft back in (the longer shaft of the 2) and it does not seem to clip in very hard. Relatively easy to pull back out.
The back left with the clip on it, I cannot get it back in. I spent hours at it. I tried every way possible, I just can’t compress the clip enough to get narrower than the splines of the differential so it will slide in.
Does the whole suspension assembly not keep the shaft securely in place? Can I fit the shaft without this clip? Or do I need to spend another few hrs and make sure I get it in.
