just installed a new cardone passenger cv assembly and a new fenco hub bearing, after slapping everything back together I noticed the inner edge of the cv boot sits flush against the axle tube... didnt seem right. looked at the drivers side CV the PO swapped and it has a good inch clearance.
What could I have possibly screwed up? could the boot be installed wrong at the factory? also my new CV's spindle nut was twice the size as the old one, so big it covered the cotter pin hole. Afraid to drive the thing and rip the new boot.
any hidden insight would be appreciated.
