|rodger1954||Thanks for all the feedback. I was able to pull the CAD intermediate support bushing by tapping from the pumpkin area, using penetrant, and using my homemade seal installer. I was shocked to discover that it is just made from plastic, because it looked like metal sitting in there. With the bushing out, it made all the difference in the world. I was able to zip everything up with no problem and no hub alignment issue.|

|Siva283||I just did this with Chromoly shafts. I did not remove that bushing. I put the 11800 seal in and added outer seals. Mine slide in no problem. Id be looking at that locker if your within a 1\4 inch that bushing isnt your problem. Its not fitting into your locker right|

|rodger1954||JeepDon, I was thinking of that method. I used it a few years ago for the CAD outer axle seal. Today, I checked installing the hub on the new axle without anything in the pumpkin area and there is still a misalignment issue. The axle is touching the bushing, so I think my only option is to remove it. I'll let everybody know how that goes. If anyone has any other methods for removing the bushing, let me know. i was thinking some sort of slide hammer approach might also work.|

|Awesome||If you aren't putting the CAD back in (why would you?) then why leave the bushing in the axle?|

|rodger1954||i can't seem to post any pics on this site. I took everything apart again last Thursday taking pics. The locker appears to have proper clearances and the new axle does insert all the way to the polished seal area. Has anyone ever removed the bushing in the CAD area? I did find some research of someone having a similar problem.|

I seem to recall reading about some axles coming with some sort of bushing on the inner side of the cad, but have never seen one in real life. they way you describe it the shaft is stopped from going all the way in. picture?
item 6 ??

I don't remember there being a splined bushing pressed into the axle housing. That doesn't make sense, because if it's splined it would need to rotate.
I remember there being a seal on the far passenger inner side of the housing, right where the CAD is. Maybe someone who has done the delete more recently than me can chime in.
Regardless, if you've removed the CAD then your issue is probably with the locker install like Don said.

|rodger1954||Thanks for the response. The shift collar is out along with the outer seal and a flat cover plate installed. My question is if the pressed in bushing just to the left of where the shift collar used to be could be causing the issue and how can it be removed. I laid both axles out next to each other and they appear to be the same length when tape measured. In answer to JeeperDon, I used the Napa 11800 seal. I really don't want to remove the pressed in Spicer bushing if I have to put the old CAD axle back in. I will attack the problem again tomorrow and attempt to add pics.|

i wont re-iterate.
Do as Awesome suggested. And to Don's point, i'm thinking this might be a locker install issue giving you the off kilter effect.
Did you take photos along the way? Could they be posted? measurements and the "off kilter" situation you're experiencing at the outer?

|JeeperDon||The guys are right, nothing between the spline socket in the diff and the knuckle. What did you do for a seal in the diff? I'd also try it with the locker removed and the stock spider gears back in.|

|timatoe||It's been many many years since I did that but there shouldn't be anything the axle shaft is going through between one end and the other except the oil seal.|
