They are probably off by about an 1/8 or maybe a little more. The front axle I purchased had the complete RSE bombshell kit installed on it, where with the 35 spline RCV's are pretty beefy, and just will not fit because of the inner sleeves. I just didn't do my research well enough to find out this combination would not work. Totally my fault. I'll try to get some measurements with some calipers hopefully within the next day or two to get an exact measurement.
Plato2K5, that's what I'm hoping to be able to have done, pending I can find a place to do it, and that it doesn't cost a small fortune! Do you know anywhere that does this?
