Having trouble uploading pics on the phone I'll try it at work this morning.

My old pinion is a slip fit on the outer... as is every other one I've done... not sure what happened on this one though.
most every axle I have ever geared you have to (press) the outer on as well. what I do is put the pinion in the housing slide the new outer bearing in with crush sleave or shims if needed and have someone with a long 4x4 hold pressure on the pinion while you use the yoke and a brass hammer to press it on
( you are calling CC a liar?? Not a nice way to treat your bitch.
tube bending and gear installs pm me for info! gears installed for $150 and up per axle.
